EUR/JPY Price Forecast: Technical outlook

In the overnight session, the EUR/JPY was subdued around the 50 and the 100-hour simple moving average (SMA), lying at 128.75 and 128.77, respectively. In the overlap of the European and North American session, faced resistance at the abovementioned, followed by a fall towards the daily low at 128.35.

The EUR/JPY daily chart depicts a neutral-downward bias. Although almost flat, the daily moving averages (DMAs) reside above the spot price.

On the downside, the EUR/JPY first support would be January 25 daily low at 128.24. A breach of the latter would expose December 2021, daily lows at 127.51. It is worth noting that a downslope trendline below the latter, part of a falling wedge, might be tested, but it is in the early stages of the pattern.

To the upside, the EUR/JPY first resistance level would be the 50-DMA at 129.27. A test of that level would expose the 100-DMA at 129.89, followed by the 200-DMA at 130.49.
