TRADE: USDJPY: Sell@121.670 Cypher + Wave Count + Divergence

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar / Japanese Yen
1013 4 17
After a nice runup where I was able to bag +159 pips (see Related Ideas: "UPDATE #2: TRADE: USDJPY: BUY@120.460 Catching A Wave 3 Up? +159"), it could be now time for some kind of retrace. Will it be a BIG retrace? No. I don't think so. Let me explain my thinking:

This pair has embarked on a 5- wave move higher. The ending of which could actually retest the highs in a wave (B). So if that is correct, then my job is to determine where prices could be in relation to the 5-wave             move. What I see so far is that this pair has just started it's wave (3) with the waves (1) and (2) already completed. Within that wave (3), waves i and ii are done and the wave 1 of the wave iii             has just completed. So what I am thinking is that the wave 2 of iii             retracement is what it coming next. After which, a wave 3 of iii             will develop. That is the true prize!

There is now a small POTENTIAL Cypher that is developing. I'm not actually trading off the CD leg of this cypher but rather using it as a "trigger" to this SHORT trade.

There is also divergence on the 4HR TF as wel as overbought sentiment. Loss of momentum up and some bearish PA also contributes to this SHORT trade.

I'm SHORTING this pair but I am not expecting a large retrace. By my wave count, this retrace should be limited to around the 120.450 level where I have the MAJOR SR Structure and that's where the wave (ii) is ended. So this retrace should not go below that area. If it does, then I have to rethink my wave counting. Stops gp above where I have labeled the end of wave 1 and the C point of the cypher . If this trade does not get underway much before the NFP, I will close the trade.

Hi! Now NFP is over what do you think about other short opportunity on this pair again ?

*another short
I've already closed this trade during the NFP even though I had suspended the trade before the NFP. I will not short anything until I have had a chance to re-analyze the price action and see what is happening. Until there is a good setup, I don't take trades.
