EURJPY traded sharply lower last Tuesday and rallies continue to be sold in the cross. As such, a bearish threat remains present. The cross has cleared support at the 50-day EMA and breached 156.59, the Sep 11 low. The break lower highlights a possible short-term reversal. Tuesday’s low of 154.46 represents a key short-term support where a breach would signal scope for a deeper retracement. Initial resistance was cleared at the 50-day EMA of 157.13, ahead of 158.65.
