EUR/JPY: yen prefers waves
Recommendation: SELL 128.45 SL 129 TP1 127.45 TP2 126.75 TP3 126.5
On the daily chart, EUR/JPY is fighting for an important level of 128.85. If buyers win, the odds of triggering “Ideal butterfly” and “Shark” patterns with targets at 127.2% and 88.6% will increase. On the other hand, bears’ victory will allow them to form AB=CD pattern. Its 161.8% target is near 120.7.
On H1 of EUR/JPY, there’s a bearish “Wolfe waves” pattern. A confident break of support at 128.45 will trigger a “Shark” pattern with targets at 88.6% and 113%.
USD/JPY is declining for the fifth day in a row. When the pair fell below 105.00, it entered a new, lower range.
The resistance line is limiting USD/JPY on the upside and, unless the pair tries for a breakout (which anyway will meet resistance at 106.50 and 106.80), the easiest path for it will be to go down.
