EUR/JPY DAILY PRICE CHART (DEC 27, 2016 - JUN 17, 2019) Zoomed OUT
Looking at the daily chart we notice EUR/JPY on Jun 12 closed below 122.52 eying to test the low end of the trading zone (122.52 – 121.25). A close below the June 3 low at 120.78 may embolden the bears to press towards 119.63. However, the weekly support zone 120.47 – 120.22 would be worth monitoring.
In turn, a failure to close below 121.25 may send the price towards 122.52. Although, daily resistance zone at 122.00 – 26.6% Fibonacci retracement at 122.15 need to be kept in focus.

EUR/JPY Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (May 30 – JUNE 17, 2019)
Looking at the four-hour chart, we notice the descending course of EUR/JPY since Jun 11. The bears might keep pressing towards the end of the trading zone mentioned above, hence if the price tumbles below 121.25 then it could continue towards the June 3 low at 120.78. The weekly support at 121.00 should be watched closely.
On the other hand, if EUR/JPY breaks above 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 122.15 then it could rally towards 122.52. The daily resistance at 122.42 needs to be considered. See the chart for more key levels if the rally continues above 122.52.
