The Relative Strength Index (RSI) remained flat above 50 on both pairs, highlighting weak buyers in a bullish market.

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Thursday EUR/JPY closed above 50-day average, then rallied in the following day to a higher trading zone 119.78- 121.19. However, this week, buyers pulled back from 120.68 causing a fall towards the low end of the zone.

A close below the low end could generate a bearish signal, may convince some sellers to send EURJPY towards 117.30. A break below the Nov 14 low at 119.25 could entice more sellers to join in pressing the price. Nevertheless, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

In turn, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone means some buyers keeping their positions. This could cause EURJPY to push towards the vicinity of 121.19-25. Further close above 121.25 may embolden more buyers to join in rallying the price towards 122.52 specially, if the pair breaks above 121.47. In that scenario, the daily and weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart should be watched closely.

From the daily chart, yesterday GBP/JPY declined towards the lower trading zone 139.00 – 140.50. This negated the bullish pennate pattern as discussed in our last update and increased the likelihood for the price to press lower.

Its worth noting that, a double top pattern is currently developing where the neckline resides at 138.83. This suggests, if the price breaks and remains below the neckline it could see GBP/JPY trading towards 136.28. Although, the weekly support levels should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, any close above the high end of the zone could revive the potential for buyers to resume bullish price action towards the vicinity of 143.09-19. Although, the daily and weekly reissuance levels and area marked on the chart should be monitored.
