- The EUR/JPY pair closed at 130.96 on Friday, confirming a downside break of the trendline connecting the Aug. 15 low and Sept. 10 low.
- The daily chart also shows a bearish crossover between the 5 and 10 exponential moving average (EMA). So, it seems safe to say that the path of least resistance is to the downside.
- The daily MACD is biased toward the bears and the relative strength index (RSI) is threatening to drop into negative territory below 50.00.
- The only cause for concern for the bears is long tails attached to three of the previous four daily trading candles.
