EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: rejected near 50-day SMA post-ECB

   •  Retreats sharply from 50-day SMA after ECB said that the key interest rates are expected to remain at their present levels at least through the summer of 2019.

   •  Repeated failures ahead of a short-term moving average, for the third time in the past one-month, clearly suggests that the near-term downslide might still be far from over. 

   •  A follow-through selling would reaffirm the negative outlook and pave the way for an extension of the downslide back towards the 127.00 round figure mark.

   •  Only a decisive breakthrough mid-130.00s (50-DMA) would negate the bearish bias and pave the way for a fresh leg of up-move.
