On the daily chart of EUR/JPY, the implementation of the "Spike and Ledge" pattern, in particular, the fall of the pair below the lower border of the "ledge" between the 127.6 and 129.25 levels, made the pair reach the 88.6% target of the "Shark" pattern. As a result, the odds of the reversal towards the 23.6%, 38.2% and 50% levels of the CD wave increased. On the other hand, the update of the December's maximum will pull the pair further down towards the 113% target.
On H1, the reversals towards the 126.75 and 127.2 resistances may be used to open short positions.
