GBPJPY update: targets

FX:GBPJPY   British Pound/Japanese Yen
An addendum to my previous 'Waiting for the perfect short' chart.
This chart describes the different projection techniques that I used to determine targets and potential retracement zones in this pair.
I'm short from 177.569, with a break even stop and will scale in every chance I get.
This corrections will be easily foreseeable using time at mode in lower timeframes, and I'll update with them in due time.
I expect to hold this trade open until the weekly signal expires at least.
Scaled in at 176.58.

Wave 1 of this new decline is complete, and retracing in a zigzag correction.

We can fade this rally's top, which I project to occur in 3-4 hours and reach the 177.28-45 mark.

Ivan, how long this up trend will continue? still you think trend is bearish?

We did reach my correction top, hope you took a short there.
The trend will continue as per my chart above.
I expect to hold and add during 3 to 5 weeks, maybe a bit more...time target is max hold until June 15th.
Now we will see a very strong move down if my analysis is correct.

Are you basing your short on the W1 bearish bar? Very valid and a lot of downwards potential. So sad i was stopped out last night now i looks like its just going to proceed downwards after closing me out. Feel like shorting it again now.

Really worried about this GBPJPY trade since it could either way the way i see it.
So worried but so tempted.

Update, waiting for this target to expire or be reached to short again.

Probable to see bearish momentum to kick in after today's close, since I don't think we will reach the target in time, sending price down, fast.

I covered 75% of the short after reaching stop distance + a slight profit buffer.
Moved stop to BE now, I suspect there is a small move up pending in *jpy pairs, might be Nikkei's 5th wave inside the 5th (which if you look at my chart below, you can see that needed to reach a certain price level to be considered 1:1 with the 3rd wave, which didn't happen)

Nikkei: Update


Maybe it's already complete and this is just a retracement, but I'd rather protect my profits and scale in after being risk free.

Good job. GBP seems too strong last week. could go either way now. bullish engulfing on W1. nothing to scoff at. unstable pair.

I'm 90% sure of the direction, just waiting for the completion of this correction up.
NZDJPY shows the same behavior, potentially one more leg up in smaller tf before the big drop.
Also agrees with my euraud short working, depends on aud/nzd/gold strength to work, that wouldn't work so well if nzdjpy and audjpy/audusd, etc go down...don't you think?

Yes i agree with NZDJPY.

It might be a very large short if confirmed. Similar to the SPX500 chart.

Actually on second though. NZDJPY looks like a pretty good sell now. oversold RSI signal with RSI divergence.

Yes, but it conflicts with my fundamental/correlation/relative strength intermarket analysis view, and with euraud in particular, which is working...also nzdusd seems to have one more leg up.

Waiting for today's bar close to enter short again, this pair has been a pain, but the wait is worth it once the move I await explodes down.

This might have been wave 2 all the time...an expanded flat.
