Looking at the daily chart, we notice since on Dec 6 EUR/JPY rebounded from the 50-day average providing a bullish signal. The pair have remained moving in the same trading zone 119.78 -121.19 since Nov 22.

Thus, the price could be on the way for a test of the high end of the zone. Further close above 121.25 may encourage more market’s participants to end current sideways move and push EURJPY towards 122.52. Although, this rally could weaken at the weekly resistance levels marked on the chart as some buyers could take profit at these points.

On the other hand, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone would reflect buyer’s hesitation. This could lead more buyers to exit the market and reverse the price’s direction towards the low end of the zone.
