EUR/JPY Bounces 120 Pips From Weekly Low

Earlier this week a low of 114.85 was achieved and may provide a lasting low as the a-b-c zigzag may have ended completing an Elliott Wave 5-3 sequence.

Those multiple levels above appearing in the same area suggests a bounce is likely. We will use a break of the trend line near 116.60 as a clue the mood of the market may be changing.

EUR/JPY Bounces 120 Pips From Weekly Low

Trader sentiment has been growing net long since early December when the pair was trading near 122. In early December the sentiment reading was 32% long (or -2.1) and has increased to 72% net long (+2.5). Sentiment is a good contrarian signal so we will watch and see if it begins to decrease. If it decreases upon a price break of 116.60, then we will have confirmation a breakout higher. Read more about trading strategies using sentiment with this sentiment guide.

Risk can be set just below the recent swing low. Earlier this week, EUR to JPY achieved a low of 114.85 and that level could be a conservative risk level. We are targeting new highs above 124 and possibly higher.
