Commentary & insights
EUR/JPY breaks above 15 year highs
- Bank of Japan (BOJ) did not hike interest rates, held the rate at -0.1%.
- The European Central Bank (ECB) hiked the rate to 4% and signaled that they are not done hiking
Technical commentary: EUR/JPY bull trigger event after the key resistance at 153 failed to hold down price. Prospects for resumption of longer term trend for next leg up towards the 156.40s can not be ruled out. Downside risk below 153 could place 147.60s in sight.
