Loose Bullish Pennant on EUR/JPY Daily Chart

Daily EUR/JPY chart shows a minor pennant formation. It is not a very powerful example of a chart pattern, but with the continuing yen weakness and a seeming predisposition of the FX investors to favor euro, it may provide a nice bullish entry signal. The “pole” bar of the pennant has formed on April 4, and the pennant part has been forming for about 3 weeks.
The chart below shows the pole and the pennant marked with the yellow lines. The cyan line above the pattern shows a bullish breakout entry level located at 10% of the pole’s height above the upper border. The green line is a target positioned at 100% of pole’s height added to the bottom-right corner of the pennant. I will use the Low of the breakout bar for stop-loss, or, if it is too close to the border line, the previous bar’s Low. You can click on the image to see a full-sized screenshot:
