Elliott wave analysis of GBP/JPY for December 23 - 2019


GBP/JPY spiked to a high 1.4773 as the Conservative Party won the election and Brexit finally seems to be finalized. The spike to 1.4773 completed red wave v and black wave iii and a correction in black wave iv are now unfolding.

A wave of this zig-zag is expected to complete in the 1.4136 - 1.4142 area for setting the stage for a rally in wave b towards resistance in the 1.4470 -1.4548 zone before wave c takes over for a second decline towards 1.3982 to complete the zig-zag correction from 1.4773.
