10/16/2008 â EUR/JPY â After dropping consistently and rapidly over the past two months with only one significant pullback, price action on the EUR/JPY daily chart, as shown, has just pulled back once again only a couple of days ago (marked âAâ). This pullback has been especially significant because it stopped almost precisely at a level that was reinforced by two different resistance factors. For one, the move pulled right back up to a key uptrend support line (marked âBâ) below which price broke down only last week. The second resistance factor is a key 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level within the context of the latest bearish run (from around 156.82 to 132.22). A downtrend continuation off this pullback should be confirmed on a clean break and close below the key 133.00 level. If this occurs, further major support to the downside resides around the 130.50 region, a significant prior support/resistance level. To the upside, the aforementioned doubly-reinforced resistance should continue to serve as key resistance going forward.
