    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/JPY cross trims losses and struggles to extend beyond 133 handle, as market now await the German Ifo data for further moves.

    EUR/JPY supported at 132.80

    Currently, the EUR/JPY pair trades -0.29% at 133, reversing the drop to 132.80 session lows. The recovery in the EUR/JPY cross appears to remain capped as the yen caught a fresh bid tone against the greenback in last hours on the back of correction, after the recent weakness.

    Moreover, the losses in the EUR/USD pair also keep EUR/JPY submerged into red as the US dollar remains broadly higher after Wednesday’s Fed rate hike decision. Looking ahead, an improved Ifo headline figures may provide fresh impetus to the recovery in the cross.
