Price Charts and Technical Analysis

The EUR/JPY is testing the resistance trend lines and 21 ema zone:

  • A bullish breakout confirms the uptrend in wave 1 or 3 (purple).
  • A deeper bearish pullback could indicate a wave 1-2 (purple).

A bullish break is expected to develop as follows:

  • It could see a break, pullback and continuation pattern.
  • A bullish daily candlestick should confirm the bullish break.
  • This is valid as long as the bullish candle appears in about the next 5 trading days (the HMA 20 should remain above the 21 ema high).

A bearish pullback could see two variations:

  • A test and bounce at the 144 ema for a wave 1-2 (purple).
  • A bearish breakout (red dotted arrow) which invalidates (red circle) this wave pattern but not the entire uptrend because the 50% and 61.8% Fib remain support

On the 4 hour chart, price action has reached the last support zone if the current pullback is a wave 4 (blue). A deeper bearish breakout (yellow circle) indicates a wave 1-2 pattern instead. A full break below the bottom (red circle) invalidates the bullish outlook.

However, if price action manages to:

  • Break above the 21 ema zone.
  • And break above the resistance trend line.
  • Then the EUR/JPY would confirm the development wave 5 to the upside.

Good trading,
