Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near 120.80 on the hourly chart of EUR/JPY. The pair even settled above the 121.00 level and recently traded as high as 121.37.

It is currently correcting lower below the 121.20 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 120.04 low to 121.37 high. It seems like there is a short term breakout pattern forming with support near the 121.00 level.

If there is a downside break, the pair might correct towards the key 120.80 support level. The main support is near the 120.70 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 120.04 low to 121.37 high.

Therefore, dips in EUR/JPY towards the 120.80 and 120.70 levels are likely to find a lot of buying interest in the near term. On the upside, the pair might face hurdles near the 121.50 and 121.80 levels.
