Looking at the daily chart we notice since the start of August EUR/JPY has been moving in the trading zone 117.30 – 119.78.

Yesterday, the pair failed to move to the lower trading zone hence, if sellers were successful to force a close below the low end of the zone, this could send the price towards 114.80. Although, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched closely. See the chart to know more about the lower trading zone/s with the weekly support levels EURJPY would face in a further bearish scenario.

In turn, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone could cause a rally towards the high-end contingent on clearing the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart.
