Japanese Yen Currency Pairs Nearing Elliott Wave Support

The US Dollar / Yen currency pair (USDJPY) continues to move sideways. It’s trapped in a tight range so we assume that it’s a triangle in the making. And possibly in the late stages of the structure.

Elliott wave guidelines suggests that when a wave D) swing high and triangle resistance line are broken, that’s when the market is ready to resume its uptrend.

For now, that’s not the case yet, so we have to be careful and wait for a rise above 110.80 before bulls are be back in play.

Let’s look at the chart.

The Euro / Yen currency pair (EURJPY) is slowing down after a sharp and impulsive rally as part of the first leg A/1. Therefore, the current decline should be seen as part of a correction in wave B/2.

We see it as a complex w-x-y correction, where ideal support would be around the 61.8 Fibonacci and 129.0 support level. This is where we can expect a continuation higher within wave C or 3.
