EUR/JPY Price Analysis: Technical outlook

After peaking around 170.00, EUR/JPY has consolidated below this level but remains above the Ichimoku Cloud (Kumo), which would accelerate the downtrend if breached.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicates that sellers are gaining momentum as it falls below the 50-line, suggesting that EUR/JPY could face further losses.

If EUR/JPY drops below the 50-day moving average (DMA) of 167.47, it could trigger a decline into the Kumo, signaling an acceleration of the downtrend. The next support would be the bottom of the Kumo at 165.92, followed by the 100-DMA at 164.78.
