    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/JPY pair advanced for the fifth consecutive session to trade above 129.00 levels as the EUR/USD is making merry of the broad based USD weakness ahead of the Fed.

    EUR/JPY clocks three-week high

    The cross clocked a three-week high of 129.23 before trimming gains slightly to trade just above 129.00 levels. The EUR/USD pair is turning out to be a major beneficiary of the broad based USD weakness.

    Meanwhile, the speculation that BOJ may ease on Friday is ensuring the JPY does not benefit from the weak tone around the USD. Consequently, the cross rose above 129.00 levels in the US session. Meanwhile, the sideways action in the European stocks is also keeping the gains in the safe haven JPY under check.

    EUR/JPY Technical Levels

    The immediate resistance is seen at 129.67 (Nov 27 low), above which the cross could target 130.57 (50-DMA). On the other hand, a failure to sustain above the immediate support at 128.72 (previous day’s low) would open doors for a drop to 128.14 (10-DMA).
