Elliott wave analysis of GBP/JPY for May 2, 2019

analytics5cca76ee50a2b.png

GBP/JPY is struggling near the resistance line, which is seen near 146.00. If this resistance line is able to cap the upside, we will need to consider the alternate count as our preferred count. However, as long as minor support at 144.95 is able to protect the downside, we will be looking for a clear break above the resistance line near 146.00 for a continuation higher to 146.85 on the way higher to 148.50 and 151.50.

Should minor support at 144.95 be broken, the alternate count will gain momentum. Under this count, renewed downside momentum will be seen for a break below important support at 143.75 that calls for a final dip to 141.05 to complete wave 2.

R3: 147.00

R2: 146.28

S1: 146.00

Pivot: 145.41

S1: 144.95

S2: 144.61

S3: 144.02

Trading recommendation:

We will take half profit on our long position from 144.00 here at 145.60. We will also move our stop higher to 144.85.
