USD/JPY Wave Relationships Near 119.50

Fibonacci Wave Ratio Analysis

  • Green wave 5 projects to 119.54 (green waves 1-3 times .618)
  • Within green 5, red wave 5 projects to 119.81
  • Intraday charts appear to be unwinding a series of wave 4 and 5’s (see video)

Bottom line, look for near term trends to finish off the larger picture wave 5 of 5. A shorter term trader can look to buy dips near 117.50-118.00 in anticipation of a smaller degree wave 5 towards 119.50

119.54-119.81 appears to be a point of attraction. This does not mean we want to short at those prices. This means the probability of a strong reaction lower is elevated if prices dig into the 119 handle.

If the longer term labeling is correct, then if a correction unfolds, dips could run for several weeks and retrace several hundred pips. The green 4th wave territory would provide longer term support should a dip develop that deep.
