don't you think that the bullish pressure underpinning EURUSD this whole week is also propping up EURJPY, preventing it from dropping too far? in comparison, GBPJPY gave us a nice 200 pip run today. even so, i've decided to stay clear more often than not from GBPJPY and EURJPY, and all other synthetic JPY crosses, focusing on majors instead--i find the PA and patterns formed on majors are usually easier to decode, although GBPUSD can be a real bitch at times. 1 famous market commentator, Jamie Coleman, used to call it 'the devil's currency.' ;) i have to agree.
Have a great weekend!
