Elliott wave analysis of GBP/JPY for February 6, 2020


GBP/JPY remains firmly at short-term important resistance of 143.35 (the high was seen at 143.37). Why did the pair make a premature low in wave iv been seen at 140.80? We need more proof to conclude if this is the case and the proof of a break above 143.37. As long as this resistance is able to cap the upside, the outlook will remain bearish for a final push lower through support at 140.80 for a dip towards 139.24 and maybe even closer to 137.86 to complete wave iv.

If, however resistance at 143.37 gives away, then we must conclude that a premature bottom has been found for wave iv and wave v to above 147.95 is developing.
