From the psychological support level of 140.00, the EUR/JPY pair has shown a less likely rebound. Following a brief recovery, the cross has found resistance at about 140.0. The asset is expected to undergo large price swings in the near term as investors shift their focus to this week's monetary policy statements by the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of Japan (BOJ).


The ECB is expected to announce a rate rise in response to market speculation, ending its 11-year streak of maintaining the status quo. Households are experiencing price pressures as a result of a significant reduction in their real income, which has significantly affected their patterns of savings and consumption.


The European Central Bank (ECB) has already made the announcement that the Asset Purchase Program (APP) would come to an end in order to reduce the galloping inflation. The focus will now shift to an increase in interest rates in the quest for readily available cheap money on the market.


The most significant event of the week will be the publication of the eurozone consumer confidence index, aside from that. The initial estimate for the Consumer Confidence statistics for the eurozone is -24.5, down from the prior estimate of -23.6.


When announcing its interest rate decision, the Bank of Japan (BOJ) is likely to keep things the same. Given that the Bank of Japan (BOJ) would likely boost global economic demand, it is expected that its governor, Haruhiko Kuroda, will take a dovish stance. The BOJ is concerned with keeping the inflation rate at 2%, and in order to do so, it must also raise labor expenses.
