  • The leg lower around the cross is picking up extra pace today, opening the door to a visit to the 125.00 level in the near term. If cleared on a sustainable basis, EUR/JPY could re-visit YTD lows in the 124.60 region.
  • EUR/JPY has been dropping almost uninterruptedly since mid-July peaks in the 132.00 neighbourhood amidst the persistent selling mood hitting the single currency and a risk-off sentiment benefiting the Japanese Yen.
  • The current decline has accelerated after the cross broke below the key support at 129.00 the figure in early August, which has now become a critical resistance area.
  • The current oversold condition allows for a squeeze higher in the near term, although the bearish view appears unchanged as long as 129.00 caps ahead of June’s tops in the 130.40 band.
