- The EURJPY is moving without a clear direction below 147.00.
- Markets remain calm awaiting the outcome of the US midterm elections.
The Euro is trading practically flat against the Japanese Yen for the second consecutive day. Upside attempts remain capped below 147.00, while support at the 146.30 area is keeping bears at a bay.
The pair wavers with the market on a wait-and-see stance
The Euro has lost the bullish momentum observed at the end of last week and the beginning of this one. The pair’s recovery from the 144.00 area traded water at 147.00 as the investors turned more cautious on the back of the uncertainty about the US midterm elections and ahead of the US CPI figures.
Euro bulls should extend past the 147.00/10 level to regain positive traction and extend gains towards 147.75 (October 26 and 31 highs) ahead of the long-term high at 148.40.
On the downside, a successful breach of the 100-period SMA might increase negative pressure to target the 146.00 area where the 50-period SMA meets November 8 lows. Below here, the next target would be November 6 low at 145.50.
