Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for August 8, 2018

analytics5b6a6043f33f1.png

EUR/JPY has rallied nicely from the 128.48 low and is ready to test the short-term important resistance at 129.62. This resistance might be spiked, but likely only shortly and then cause a corrective decline to 129.00 before trying to push higher again.

To confirm that wave ii/ completed with the 128.48 test, we need a clear break above 129.62 and upside acceleration towards important resistance at 131.15. A break above this resistance confirms our preferred scenario and calls for a rally towards 135.74 - 135.79 next.

R3: 130.61

R2: 130.33

R1: 130.08

Pivot: 129.62

S1: 129.24

S2: 129.00

S3: 128.78

Trading recommendation:

We are long EUR from 128.72. We will take half profit at 129.50 and keep our stop at 128.45 for the rest.
