EUR/JPY: the pair continues falling within a downward channel

July 21, 2015

Current trend

The Euro remains under the pressure amid general public opposing mood in Greece and poor macroeconomic indicators from the eurozone. There are no important publications affecting the Euro this week.

Tomorrow, attention needs to be paid to All Industry Activity index and other important publications in Japan. On Thursday, the Consumer Confidence index for eurozone is due. On Friday, Markit PMI indices are out in Germany and France.

Therefore, in the medium-term the Euro continues falling.
