    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The JPY demand remains intact in Europe amid losses in equities, resulting in a drop in the USD/JPY pair below the 200-DMA at 121.59 levels.

    Key support zone breached

    The pair took out the key support zone of 121.77-121.59 – 50-DMA, 100-DMA and 200-DMA in Europe to print a session low of 121.14. The bid tone on the JPY gathered pace after the BOJ decision and strengthened further on account of the losses in the European equities.

    The treasury yields in the US have dipped as well, which indicates a risk-off trade might be underway. Consequently, the USD/JPY pair is eyeing key support at 120.97 (50% of 125.856-116.082).
