EUR/JPY Price- Bulls Pullback
On June 5, EUR/JPY took off to an over thirteen-month low at 124.43. However, the price retreated as some bulls seemed to cut back. Last week, bulls eased further and this led the market to close the weekly candlestick in the red with a 1.1% loss.
The Japanese yen retreated recently due to the risk-on sentiment driven by the central bank's stimulus around the globe combined with the gradual easing of restrictions. Yet, the prospect of a second wave of coronavirus kept investors jittery.
