    FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/JPY is currently making further gains on a euro bid environment and is currently testing the 200 SMA on the hourly chart at 132.73 having broken clear of the sma cluster through the 100 and 20 SMA at 132.39.

Any profit-taking in thin markets triggering stops could be causing exaggerated gains as EUR/USD now approaches the 1.0980's at time of writing for another test of the highs scored at 1.0984 earlier.

    These holiday markets moves are what they are and focus remains on 2016 after a year full of surprises, shocks and volatility returning. Will direction take a hold next year or will it be much of the same volatility with plenty of uncertainty?

    This was discussed last week when FXStreet hosted a special event about what 2016 might hold for the Forex traders. The panelists were Ashraf Laidi, Boris Schlossberg, Adam Button and Valeria Bednarik. Today, we want to share with you the recording of the whole show. Watch now and look out for commentary around the BoJ, currency wars, the Fed and ECB.
