Previous: EUR/JPY Attacking Rising Trendline Support (11/5)

EUR/JPY Daily Chart 11/8/2012 3:35PM EST

Broken Trendline: Today after some initial bounce after the ECB meeting and press conference, the EUR/JPY slid further away from the 102 handle, showing a clear break below the rising trendline support, as seen in the daily chart. The break below 1.02 also pushes below the 200-dqay SMA, opening up some retracement targets, the first one being 100.58, 38. 2%. Below that there is a support pivot at 100.14. These are conservative targets. If the market can hold below 102, the focus remains bearish with further room to the downside.

50% retracement at 99.34 to 99.55 pivot is a valid target for the current bearish outlook. A slightly more aggressive target is the 98.00 handle to 98.10, 61.8% retracement.
