    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/JPY cross jumped to 133.77 levels after BOJ’s fresh easing program caught markets by surprised, but quickly erased entire gains to trade at 132.50.

    Back below hourly 200-MA

    The cross has trimmed gains to trade below its hourly 200-MA at 133.27 levels. The sell-off in Yen proved to be short-lived as the spike in the Japanese benchmark Nikkei index was quickly undone. Meanwhile, the S&P futures have stayed in red despite the BOJ’s surprise, which is supporting the Yen as well.

    As of now, the cross is trading at 132.85 levels; up only 0.12% on the day. The pair could see another spike as prospects of a fresh JPY selling is high in Europe.

    EUR/JPY Technical Levels
