EUR/JPY – 130.81
EUR/JPY: Wave v as well as larger degree wave (C) ended at 94.11 and first leg of larger degree wave C upmove ended at 149.79 and wave 2 correction has possibly ended at 109.49.
As the single currency has risen again after brief pullback, the breach of previous resistance at 130.77 adds credence to our bullish count for medium term upmove from 109.49 low (2016 low) to extend further gain to 132.00-10, however, near term overbought condition should prevent sharp move beyond 132.90-00 (1.236 times projection of 109.49-124.10 measuring from 114.85) and price should falter well below previous chart resistance at 134.59, risk from there has increased for a retreat to take place later.
The daily chart is labeled as attached, early selloff from 169.97 (July 2008) to 112.08 is wave (A) of B instead of end of entire wave B and then the rebound from there to 139.26 is wave (B), hence, wave (C) has possibly ended at 94.12 with a diagonal triangle as labeled in the daily chart, hence upside bias is seen for further gain. Recent rally above indicated retracement level at 116.69 (50% Fibonacci retracement of the intermediate fall from 139.26-94.12) adds credence to this view and signal major reversal has commenced but first leg of this wave C has possibly ended at 149.79, hence wave 2 has commenced with wave A ended at 126.09, followed by wave B at 141.06, wave C commenced and could have ended at 109.49, above 126.00 would add credence to this view, then headway to 130.00 would follow.
On the downside, although initial pullback to 130.40-50 cannot be ruled out, reckon 129.50-55 would limit downside and support at 128.49-57 would hold and bring another rise to aforesaid upside targets. A daily close below support at 128.49 would bring test of support at 127.44 but break of latter level is needed to suggest a temporary top is possibly formed, bring retracement of recent upmove to 126.45-50 but price should stay above previous resistance at 125.82 (now support) and euro may head north again from there. Only a sustained breach below this level would signal correction of recent upmove has commenced for further fall to 125.15-20 but previous resistance at 124.65 would hold from here.
Recommendation: Buy at 128.55 for 131.55 with stop below 127.55.
To re-cap the corrective upmove from the record low of 88.93 (18 Oct 2000), the wave A from there is subdivided as: 1:88.93-113.72, 2:99.88 (1 Jun 2001), 3:140.91 (30 May 2003), 4:124.17 (10 Nov 2003) and 5 ended at record high of 169.97 (21 Jul 2008). The brief but sharp selloff to 112.08 is viewed as a-b-c x a-b-c wave (A) of B. The subsequent rebound to 139.26 is (B) of B and (C) of (B) has possibly ended at 94.12 and in any case price should stay well above previous chart support at 88.93, bring rally in larger degree wave C towards 150.00.
