Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for August 7, 2018


EUR/JPY tested triple support at 128.50, where it made a backtest of the broken resistance-line, which now acts as support. It backtested the broken S/H/S bottoms neckline, which now acts as support too, and finally tested the 61.8% corrective target of wave i/. So the odds for a corrective low for wave ii/ is pretty good here and there is a chance for wave iii/ to take over and start rallying towards 135.79 as the next upside target.

EUR/JPY has been locked inside an ascending channel for the past two years and this channel is still dominating the larger picture calling for more upside pressure. Ultimately, the peak of wave (D) at 135.55 should be broken for a rally towards 205.
