USDJPY Elliott Wave 4 Hour  Chart 05.01.2024

The pair is correcting cycle from the 146.352 low. The pull back is showing lower low sequences from April 29th peak. Current view suggests that the correction is still incomplete at the moment. Our analysis forecasts further downside in USDJPY toward the 152.295-148.75  area ( blue box).

Despite the expected extension lower, we advise against selling USDJPY.  Once the pair reaches this blue box area, we expect it to attract buyers. We can see either rally towards new highs or a corrective bounce in three waves at least. Once the bounce reaches the 50% Fibonacci retracement level against the connector high -((b)) black, we’ll secure our position by moving the stop-loss to breakeven.  To safeguard our trade, we’ll closely monitor for any break below the marked invalidation level :148.75

A quick reminder:

Our charts are designed for simplicity and ease of trading:

  • Red bearish stamp + blue box = Selling Setup
  • Green bullish stamp + blue box = Buying Setup
  • Charts with Black stamps are deemed non-tradable. 🚫
