Yen Crosses-Reversal Risk is High

EURJPY Daily Line

Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

The EURJPY has rallied over 1400 pips from its January low and nearly touched the 10/31/11 (intervention high) today. The proximity of the October pivot combined with the impulsive (5 wave) structure of the advance and waning upside momentum (RSI divergence) warn of a turn lower from current levels. Bigger picture, the 5 wave advance does suggest that a major low is in place and that the coming decline will prove corrective. Levels to keep in mind in the coming weeks are the former 4th wave low at 10565 and former resistance at 10220 and 10330.

GBPJPY Daily Line

The GBPJPY has rallied over 1600 pips from its January low. The impulsive (5 wave) structure of the advance and waning upside momentum (RSI divergence) warn of a turn lower from current levels. Bigger picture, the 5 wave advance does suggest that a major low is in place and that the coming decline will prove corrective. Levels to keep in mind in the coming weeks are the former 4th wave low at 12650 and former resistance at 12280.

EidoSearch is a powerful pattern recognition tool.

Summary

The EidoSearch test results confirm bearish implications from the 5th wave interpretation in the EURJPY, GBPJPY and Yen crosses in general. From a sentiment perspective, recent COT figures indicate that the rest of the world has caught on to the short Yen (long Yen cross) trade. A saturated market is a market at risk of a sharp reversal (USDJPY pivot is now at 8300).

Given the tendency for market trends (currently bullish) to persist into month end, I favor shorting Yen crosses in early April.
