EUR/JPY daily chart
The EUR/JPY broke beneath the rising trendline from the 2021 low around January, which passes through August lows. The first support level would be the August 19 low at 127.92. A clear break of that level could pave the way for further losses. The next demand zone would be February 2, low at 126.10. A breach of that level could expose the 2021 low at 125.08.
The Relative Strength Index is at 31.63, slightly flat, but remains beneath the 50-midline and maintains the bearish bias.
