EUR/JPY daily chart

On the daily chart. The EUR/JPY pair has been trading in a monthly upward trend beginning in late April. EUR/JPY faces rejection near the 134.00 mark and consolidates in a broader trading range of 133.0-134.15.

If price sustains above the session’s high at 133.56, then it has the potential to reach the June 4 high at 133.81 followed by the June 2 high at 134.07.

The Moving Average Convergence (MACD) indicator holds onto overbought trajectory with bearish momentum. Any uptick in the MACD would prompt EUR/JPY bulls to aim for the levels last seen in 2017. The pair would seek November 2017 high at 134.15.

Alternatively, if price moves lower, then it could first target the 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at 133.06. It would mark the breach of the 20-day SMA. The cross would spot the next target at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, which extends from the lows of 129.59,  at 132.92.

The price action would encourage EUR bears to attract the May 24 low at 132.52.
