Looking at the daily chart we notice on Thursday, EUR/JPY fell to the lower trading zone 117.30 – 119.78. The pair may test this week the low end of this zone.

On the flipside, any failure to close below the low end of this trading zone, could reverse the pair’s direction pushing the price towards the high end of the zone. Further close above the high end may cause more bullishness towards 121.25. However, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.
