MAJOR TREND CHANGE EURO JPY- EASY 250 PIPS ?
The bearish pattern now seen on the EURO JPY as part of a major trend change, could either be one of the largest Bear Crowns you will see in the Forex or a setup for a very large Pennant Consolidation. A small Pennant has just been broken on the Daily Chart that could provide 250- 280 Pips of potential trading gains. However, given the uncertainty of the larger formation taking shape, this might actually be a very risky trade.
The Pennant broken can be seen here along with the potential take profit areas if the breakout takes place. The Breakout Equivalent is the expected target to be hit based on the size of the Pennant, while the Weekly Range is the average distance that this pair moves when it is trending.
DAILY CHART - PENNANT BREAKOUT
DAILY CHART - BREAKOUT TARGETS
On the face of it, this looks like a very straightforward Consolidation Breakout setup with a strong bearish candle signal. If this breakout materializes, the targets would be hit within 3-6 days to give traders a good profit in a market offering very few opportunities. This may even be supported by a very large, though awkward-looking Bear Crown Setup and a movement towards the major Outer Uptrend Line.

DAILY CHART - INNER & OUTER TREND LINES
Breaks of Trend Lines that follow the end of a major trend usually lead to movement towards an Outer Trend Line if this exits. However, another look at the setup also gives us the impression that this awkward pattern may actually be a very large Pennant that is being formed. This would mean that a Reversal and False Breakout will actually be the pattern that we actually see that leads to the 2nd Support of this Pennant being formed.
DAILY CHART - CONSOLIDATION ?
This setup actually looks to be the more likely outcome given the unusual pattern of this currency pair. Such large Consolidations also tend to appear when the market is transitioning from the end of a major trend to the start of another.

Aggressive traders could take the chance to trade this breakout in case we are wrong about this large Pennant. But given the examples of similar setups across the market, it may be better to forgo this one and wait for another, clearer trade setup.
