EUR / JPY is testing the previous high at 127. Price action confirmed the expected bullish rebound at 50% Fib.
Now the uptrend has reached a turning point: will the uptrend be able to continue above the peak? Or will a larger bearish pullback take control?
Price charts and technical analysis
EUR / JPY has a better chance of continuing its uptrend for now. Mainly because of:
- The bullish breakout above the resistance trend lines (orange dotted line)
- The strong push above and away from the 21 ema zone
- Wave patterns suggest full ABC correction (gray) in wave 4 (orange)
The key decision area is the 21 ema up and down. A bullish rebound would indicate that a continuation of the uptrend (green arrows) is likely
A bearish breakout, however, indicates a deeper retracement (red arrows). In this case, the immediate pattern of wave 123 (gray) has failed but the larger uptrend remains intact (blue arrows) via extended wave 4 (orange 4 ‘).
On the 4 hour chart, price action rebounded to resistance from the Wizz 8 level and previous high. This could indicate an ABC (black) pattern in wave 4 (pink).
A breakout could drop to Fibonacci targets around 124.50-125-125.50, where a bullish rebound is expected (green arrow).
An immediate bullish breakout (blue arrows) could take place if the price action reverses and passes above the local resistance zone.
