From the daily chart, we notice on Sep 3 EUR/JPY U- turned and rallied towards 120.00 handle. The price then started a sideways move and created a lower high at 118.47. Since Oct 2, sellers have been testing the low end of current trading zone 117.30 – 119.78 However, showing lack of momentum in forcing a clear close below this threshold.

Thus, a close above the low end of the zone could cause a continuation of the trendless move i.e. rally EURJPY towards the high end, contingent on clearing the daily resistance level underscored on the chart (zoomed in).

That said, a close below the low end of the zone may see EURJPY trading towards the vicinity of 114.95-80. In that scenario, the weekly support area and level marked on the chart should be watched closely.
