: Continued bearishness remains intact following the cross' failure at 102.52, its Dec. 21 low.

This leaves the risk of an eventual return to its Dec. 15 low of 101.02. A violation there will create scope for further declines toward the October low of 100.75. A move below that mark will resume a long term downtrend toward the 100.00 to 99.87 levels, the low range for July 2010, with a loss there extending further downside weakness. Its daily RSI is bearish and pointing lower supporting this view.

On the other hand, on any corrective offensive, EUR-JPY will have to convincingly break and hold above the 102.52 level, its Dec. 21 low, followed by its Dec 02'2011 high of 105.69 to reverse its medium-term bearish tone.

If this occurs it will trigger further upside recovery toward the Oct. 31 high of 111.52 and the Aug. 29 high of 111.92.

All in all, EUR-JPY faces the possibility of returning to the 101.02 level and beyond.
