Elliott Wave Analysis of EUR/JPY for April 21 - 2016
Our preferred count remains that an important bottom was seen at 121.69 and a new impulsive rally to above 149.55 is developing. The rally of the 121.69 low to 124.40 was wave i and wave ii is currently unfolding. The corrective wave ii has already tested the minimum corrective target at 123.39 (the 38.2% corrective target). We could still see a little more downside pressure in wave ii, but a failure to break below support at 123.39 and a break above resistance at 124.40 instead will indicate underlying strength for the next rally higher towards 127.87 and likely even higher.
Our stop was quickly hit indicating that going short now is a bad idea. We will instead be looking for buying opportunities and will place a buy-order at 123.25 or upon a break above 124.40 (one order done cancels the other).
