EUR/JPY remains trading in the red, stumbles to a new five-day low of 161.77, before recovering some ground, toward the end of Monday’s session, registering losses of 0.61%. Nonetheless, the pair is trading with a positive tone in the early Asian session, trading at 162.25, gaining 0.01%.
The lack of fundamental news triggered safe-haven flows toward the Japanese Yen (JPY), opening the door for a pullback. The EUR/JPY daily chart witnessed the cross-pair slipping below the Tenkan-Sen at 162.82, which could exacerbate further downside. The next demand zone would be the Senkou Span A at 161.76, followed by the 161.00 mark. The next floor level would be the Kijun-Sen at 160.69.
On the other hand, the path of least resistance suggests the EUR/JPY might resume its ongoing rally, though traders must reclaim the Tenkan-Sen at 162.83. Upside risks remain above that level, followed by the 163.00 figure. A breach of the latter could open the door to challenging the year-to-date (YTD) high at 164.31.
