The first movement of the impulse wave, which started in Q4 2012, had a movement of about 26,000 pips from about 77. xx
to 103. xx
. Wave 5 should mirror this movement, which if it began in the summer of 2016 around 98, would bring us to the 124 area. This would certainly be a double top
, and macroeconomic headwinds will likely demand continued strength. From here, there are still 600 pips left in this movement, so we will be buying dips and taking partial profit on spikes. If the Euro
reaches parity before the U/J hits our target, more than likely we will square all trades and reassess.

Carry Trade strategy - EUR/JPY
Long and EUR/ZAR
Short exited yesterday. Would maintain small position if our broker carried ZAR/JPY, but maintaining two pairs with no option hedges proved to be too volatile and margin heavy. Still profitable.
