The forecast for the EUR/JPY turned bearish after a breakout above its Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Cloud, which is sloping downward, is losing momentum. While the Kijun-sen continues to ascend, the Tenkan-sen turned sideways, and the CCI moved out of extreme overbought conditions with more downside potential.
