EUR/JPY has created a falling wedge – a bullish reversal pattern – on the 4-hour chart.  

A move above the upper edge of the wedge, currently at 126.38, would confirm a breakout and open the doors to re-test of recent highs near 127.50. On the way higher, the pair may encounter resistance at 126.94 (March 5 high).  

The breakout, however, may remain elusive or could end up trapping the bulls on the wrong side of the market if the European Central Bank introduces another dovish tweak to its forward guidance, having acknowledged in December that balance of risks is growing to the downside and revises growth forecasts significantly lower.
