  • EUR/JPY prints six-day losing streak as sellers cheer downside break of 21-day SMA amid bearish MACD.
  • A confluence of 50-day SMA, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement also becomes the key support.
  • Bulls have multiple upside barriers even if they cross immediate SMA resistance.

EUR/JPY remains on the back foot while trading around 125.50, down 0.11% on a day, during the early Tuesday. The pair currently rests near an ascending trend line from July 24 as the bears firm up the grip after breaking the 21-day SMA amid downbeat MACD conditions.

Hence, further, selling awaits a clear break of 125.38 support line figures to aim for August 21 low near 124.45.

However, a joint of 50-day SMA and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of June-September upside, around 124.10, followed by 124.00 threshold, will restrict the pair’s additional downside.

On the contrary, an upside break of 21-day SMA, currently around 125.70 will have 126.00 and August 13 to near 126.75 before challenging the monthly top of 127.07.

In a case where the bulls manage to dominate past-127.07, March 2019 peak surrounding 127.50 will be the key.
