EUR/JPY has been moving sideways since the soft rebound on the 128.50 support level in a previous couple of days. Currently, the price is moving sharply lower, below 129.00, and is standing below the 20- and 40-simple moving averages (SMAs) in the 4-hour chart, while the technical indicators are signaling further losses. The RSI indicator slipped below the threshold of 50 and the %K line of the stochastic oscillator recorded a bearish crossover with the %D line in the overbought zone.
If the bears manage to take charge, then the expectation is for another test of the 128.50 level. A break of this key level, which is the lower boundary of the narrow range, would confirm a downside tendency and may pave the way towards the 127.90 level.
On the flip side, a retest of the upper boundary of 129.50, which overlaps with the 40-SMA is possible. A clear jump above this level would bring the pair above the near-term consolidation area and move towards the 130.85 resistance region, taken from the high on August 30.
To sum up, the market is expected to hold neutral in the short-term and bearish in the medium-term.
