Pair's Outlook 
The Euro reached the predicted target yesterday, but was then pushed back down, which resulted in breaching the support that held the given pair afloat. Ultimately, the EUR/JPY cross found support only near 135.27, namely the weekly S1. The single currency is likely to extend its declined today and settle around the 100-day SMA at 135.10. However, we should not rule out the possibility of a slight rebound, in spite of mixed technical indicators, as the weekly S1 is now strongly bolstered by the 200-day SMA. 

Traders' Sentiment
Bearish traders keep gaining numbers, as 57% of all positions are short today (previously 55%). At the same time, the number of purchase orders dropped dramatically from 61 to 34%.
