The Euro dipped against the Japanese Yen in early European trading today as investors sought the safety of the Yen due to a lack of significant market drivers. The EUR/JPY pair was trading around 161.83, marking a 0.29% decline from its previous position.

Market participants are closely monitoring the upcoming speech by European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde for indications that could sway market sentiment. The currency pair's movement has been further influenced by comments from ECB member François Villeroy de Galhau, who emphasized the need to maintain current interest rates, pushing back against any expectations of rate cuts.

Despite a bearish Relative Strength Index (RSI) signal, other technical indicators hint at potential bullish momentum if the pair remains above certain key levels. Traders are watching the 100-hour Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) closely, which is considered an important support level at 161.60. On the flip side, immediate resistance is identified at the 50-hour EMA, which stands at 161.46.

Investors and traders are now awaiting more concrete signals from ECB officials that could provide clearer direction on the future path of monetary policy and its impact on currency valuations.
