Today in the early European trading session, the EUR/JPY stretched its previous session bullish trend and took further bids around an intraday top closer to 123.240, mainly due to the risk-on market sentiment. The faded safe-haven appeal was backed by the on-going optimism over treatment for the highly infectious coronavirus. Therefore, the demand for Japanese yen fell compared to the single currency Euro and we noticed an upward movement in the EUR/JPY currency pair.
A day before, the EUR/USD pair’s gains were limited after the speech of European Central Bank’s President, Christine Lagarde. She made fresh comments on the coronavirus pandemic threat and said that despite the rebounded economic activity in Eurozone, the recovery remains incomplete, uncertain, and uneven. She added that consumer spending has resumed, but they are still cautious about their jobs and income prospects, so the spending is behind its margin. Similarly, the business investment has picked up, but the weak demand and pertaining uncertainty have weighed on the investment plans.
The market trading sentiment recently got the lift from the hints of further money flow from the US and Europe. These developments were supported by the US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s optimism towards the COVID-19 aid package discussion. Apart from this, the European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde repeated that the Governing Council, “continues to stand ready to adjust all of its instruments, as appropriate” Thi, in turn, boosted the market trading sentiment.
The US-China picked up further pace after the headline from the South China Morning Post (SCMP), published Tuesday’s early Asian session, suggests further hardships for the Sino-American trade deal. However, the news relies on China’s imports of the US goods under the trade agreement between Washington and China, which keeps challenging the upbeat market tone and cap further upside momentum for the currency pair.
The EUR/JPY pair is trading with a bullish bias at 123.400 level, having violated a descending triangle pattern on the four hourly charts. The triangle pattern was extending resistance at 122.850 level, and bullish crossover and formation of a bullish engulfing pattern may drive further buying until the next resistance area of 124.088 level. The leading technical indicators such as RSI and MACD also show bullish crossover, supporting bullish bias in the market. At the same time, the 50 EMA is also in support of the buying trend.
