EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: H&S breakdown favors drop below 124.00

The EUR/JPY pair is currently trading a 124.20 and could soon drop below the psychological level of 124.00, having suffered a head-and-shoulders (H&S) breakdown on Friday.

Hourly chart

  • The H&S breakdown indicates that the corrective bounce from the Jan. 3 low of 118.82 has ended and the bears have likely regained some control.
  • Notably, that pattern has opened the doors to 123.90 (target as per the measured move method).
  • Validating that bearish argument is the 14-hour RSI of 32.00 and the downward sloping 5- and 10-day moving averages (MAs).
  • A break above 124.50 (H&S neckline) would invalidate the bearish setup.
