EURJPY nears the start of something big


Recommended Posts

Having looked at GBPJPY last week I was intrigued to see what EURJPY has to offer and it is interesting.  It seems to me that this pair is aligned to GBPJPY except that it doesn't look like it will run as far, which means that my initial long term outlook for EURGBP to weaken could be supported here.


Looking at the Monthly and Weekly charts we get the long term picture with, unsurprisingly, long term Yen strength but it looks to have bottomed out and put in the first part of either an large A-B-C retrace or the beginnings of a strong move in the opposite direction.  Currently there is a retrace of that first move back up in EWT1-2 form that could be nearing completion on or about the Fib 76% off the relatively recent rally up to A or 1 (purple).  If we look at the Daily chart we can see a potential small retrace in action right now that could turn into a small wave 3 heading down towards that Fib 76% termination.  After that a strong rally would be indicated.


You get a similar reading from GBPJPY and with EURGBP seemingly set to rally in the short term and EURJPY set to fall then GBPJPY should also fall.

Don't know if anyone decided to trade this pair Short or not (or GBPJPY either).  Given the uncertainty and complexity around all USD pairs and indeed other crosses like EURGBP I have been focusing my attention on the Yen, which often seems to offer something alternative.  I am Short USDJPY and have also taken Shorts on both EUR and GBP/JPY.  Even if GBP and EUR rally post FOMC I believe the Yen will rally harder and the technicals support further short term falls in both these JPY pairs to a wave 2 conclusion before a strong rally in line with USDJPY rally.


The Daily Chart looks very similar to the USDJPY so if you believe that pair is going down then there is a good chance this one will two.  I am looking for a touch on the 76% Fib area to complete the final wave of the Wave 2 retrace from the Weekly chart.


The 4 Hourly shows a Triangle retrace pattern that may be about to see a breakout down after the completion of a small scale EWT1-2, which suggests we are in a wave 3 down (long and strong move).  I expect this move to break through the lower Triangle line hard and not look back when it eventually does breakout.  Neg Mom Div is supporting this forecast.

Keeping with the JPY theme from USDJPY I have been tracking EURJPY for a while now and shorted when it reached the Triangle line and resistance zone (hourly chart).  Looks like a possible pin bar reversal in play off the Triangle.  Follows prognosis for a period of weakness on USDJPY and suggests EURUSD rally may turn slow or back down.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
