Market overview for EURJPY

The market overview lets you quickly compare price movements on different timescales.

The overview shows three gauges, for the price movement during the last 60 minutes, 24 hours, and 5 days. Each gauge shows the current price in relation to the high-low range (with prices). A gauge which is mostly blue means that the current price is towards the top end of the range; orange means that the price is towards the lower end of the range. The inner bar then shows the open price for the period, and the corresponding % change.

Below the gauges are three simple candle charts, letting you compare short-term market activity on the M5, M15 and H1 timeframes.


The EURJPY pair is the abbreviation of the Euro against the Japanese Yen. The Yen is a historically low-yielding currency, making an attractive vehicle to fund carry trades where traders borrow cheaply in JPY to buy higher-yielding currencies, including EUR. Investors tend to favor carry trades at times of optimism about global economic performance and stability; and avoiding them at times of market stress. This makes EUR/JPY sensitive to swings in broad-based market sentiment trends. The pair usually finds volatility in economic news related to the Eurozone debt crisis as well as the extraordinary anti-deflation policy efforts from the Bank of Japan that were introduced in 2013.
