EURJPY

Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the 112.77 low to 113.68 high may also come into play on the downside as a support.

Overall, the pair remains supported on the downside, and may keep rising in the short term.

Euro Zone Sentix Investor Confidence

Earlier today during the London session, Euro Zone Sentix Investor Confidence index, which a monthly survey showing the market opinion about the current economic situation and the expectations for the next semester was released by the Sentix GmbH.

The forecast was slated for a rise from 1.7 to 3 in August 2016. However, the result was positive as there was an increase to 4.2. The report added that “Positive growth impulses of the Chinese economy are accountable for the latest upswing, however. The European economy merely contributes to the confidence built up. The index for Asia ex. Japan jumps from +8.2 to +14.1 points. The latest round of yuan depreciation against the US Dollar and the Japanese Yen seems to act as a stimulant”.

The Euro may gain traction further in the near term, which is why buying can be opted versus the Japanese yen.
