Elliott wave analysis of GBP/JPY for March 9, 2021


GBP/JPY has broken nicely above the former peak at 150.44 and should continue higher towards the next extension target at 152.54. This should complete blue wave v and red wave iii/ and set the stage for a new temporary correction towards support in the 150.21 - 150.37 area. It's possible that the correction will be slightly deeper than 150.21, but the potential downside should be limited and it should just be a question about time before the underlying uptrend resumes towards the ideal target in the 155.55 - 156.61 area.

A break below 150.85 will indicate that a temporary top is in place and the correction in red wave iv/ is unfolding.
