EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: breaks below 50-hour SMA, now seems vulnerable

   •  The cross snapped three consecutive days of winning streak and stalls the ongoing recovery move from 11-month lows set last week.
   •  Forms a triple top bearish chart pattern on the 1-hourly chart and retracement back below 50-hour SMA prompted some fresh technical selling in the past hour, which could get extended towards 200-hour SMA support. 
   •  Now a sustained move beyond the 128.70 region, nearing 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the 131.04-124.62 recent fall, is needed to negate the bearish pattern formation.
