Guest Commentary: Short-Term Elliott Strategy for USD/JPY

Guest Commentary: Short-Term Elliott Strategy for USD/JPY

Eric Morera, Technical Strategist

The current Elliott wave structure for USDJPY remains bullish following the corrective decline from January 2 to February 3, 2014. Since February 3, the pair has been drifting higher and now shows three waves up from the low at 101.18.

Following a pullback towards the 102.05 - 102.32 region, expect further USDJPY strength (toward 104.21 - 104.93) to complete a cycle from 100.73 (the Feb. 3 low).

We don't like selling USDJPY at this juncture and instead favor buying dips in three, seven, or 11 swings as long as the 101.18 pivot low remains intact. There should be no strong selling in USDJPY until price has reached the 104.21 - 104.93 area.
