Elliott wave analysis of GBP/JPY for January 17, 2019

analytics5c40175205c13.png

Ms. May's won the no confidence vote (no surprise), but it remains unclear whether wave ii completed already with the dip to 137.37 and wave iii is developing towards 151.50 or a more complex wave ii correction is developing. A clear break above the resistance-area between 140.43 – 140.88 will confirm that wave iii is developing. However, while this resistance-area is able to cap the upside, we must accept the possibility of a more complex correction as the most likely outcome for a second decline towards 135.07 to complete wave ii.

R3: 141.19

R2: 140.88

R1: 1.4043

Pivot: 140.03

S1: 139.73

S2: 138.96

S3: 138.53

Trading recommendation:

We will buy GBP at 135.20 or upon a break above 140.90. (If you already bought GBP at 140.43, then sell now or at the latest upon a break below 139.65 and be ready to re-buy GBP again).
