Overall, EUR/JPY is trending downwards. Recently, EUR/JPY rejected the resistance zone of 130.000. During the monetary policy meeting yesterday, the European Central Bank (ECB) held its monetary policy unchanged. No discussions on quantitative easing were made. With the recent revision in inflation target, the central bank has revised its forward guidance on interest rates, stating its expectation that interest rates will remain at the current or lower levels until inflation is approaching its 2% target in the medium term as well as sustaining for the rest of the ECB’s projection horizon.
