  • EUR/JPY loses traction around 156.60, backed by the positive economic outlook from the Japanese government.
  • The cross maintains the bearish vibe as it holds below the key EMA; RSI indicator stands in bearish territory below 50.
  • The immediate resistance level is seen at 157.71; the initial support level is located at 155.38.
  • The EUR/JPY cross extends its downside near 156.60 during the early European session on Thursday. That being said, the upward revision of economic growth estimates by the Japanese government lifts the Japanese Yen (JPY) and creates a headwind for the EUR/JPY cross.

Additionally, the 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands in bearish territory below 50, indicating further downside looks favorable.
