EURJPY: Clues Point to 800-Pip Target

On December 18th I pointed out a EURJPY selling opportunity.

The risk-sensitive pair had been trading within an 800 pip range since late February.

The range floor was 125.00, and the range ceiling was 133.00. With EURJPY trading at 127.80 on December 18th, shorts had nearly 300 pips to work with.

EURJPY broke our trend line support on the 18th and retested the area as new resistance on the 19th and 20th of December.

Fast forward to today, and the pair has reached our short-term target at 125.00.

In fact, EURJPY is at risk of breaking down even further should the pair close the day below the 125.00 handle.

One thing I like to do in situations like this is to use the prior range to identify a final target.

It’s the most straightforward method but is also highly effective.

First, we need to measure the distance between the exact range bottom at 124.90 to the range top at 133.10.

That gives us a height of 820 pips.

Second, we measure 820 pips below the former range bottom at 124.90.

That gives us a target of 116.70.

Once we have that figure, we can look for clues around the 116.70 region to see if it’s an area that could potentially trigger a reaction.

You’ll quickly notice that there is an open gap from April 21, 2017, near 116.35.

While it isn’t exactly 820 pips below 124.90, there are only 35 pips between the potential target and the open gap.

Considering the substantial distance we’re dealing with here, a 35 pip difference is inconsequential in my opinion.

There are also several swing highs around 116.35; further evidence that it’s a significant area for the EURJPY.

Keep in mind that a move of that magnitude will take weeks if not months to play out.

In summary, a daily close below 124.90 / 125.00 would expose 122.60, 120.70, 118.40 as well as the final target near 116.70.

Alternatively, a close back above 125.00 would negate the bearish outlook.

    1. The same can be said about the GBPJPY with a 1000 pip range from highs of 149.6 down to a floor of 139.50 with a potential target of 127.25

  1. Meanwhile the EURUSD seems not to be going up (as previouslyr mooted) but ? has a head and shoulders on the weekly and seems to be rapidly chasing down.

    1. There’s no head and shoulders on the weekly which means you can’t set a measured objective target, but price action is sticking with the weekly down trend which indicates it could soon break from the daily triangle and give you a target based on that.

    1. No it doesn’t, be careful. These are just trade ideas and if you don’t completely understand them then don’t engage with the market for real.

  2. I came across your YouTube channel in the 2nd week of Dec, 2018. I listened to your webinar ‘7 Secrets of Consistent Forex Profits’. I must say that I’ve been so blessed listening to the webinar cos it was very rich with good, insightful, practically useful information, (just as you promised in the webinar). Likewise, reading your posted FX pairs analyses has been very very enlightening. You have brought a lot of clarity to the price action trading approach. A big thanks to you, Justin. As soon as I can, I will sign up for your coaching program. I really look forward to doing that ASAP. Have a good profitable 2019. Many thanks.

  3. Wow, what a great eye. Now for the retest of that consolidation then I am SHORT. Otherwise, I will sit on the sidelines and wait.

  4. Justin, please do a take on USDCAD. I think that thing is getting ripe for a great short of many many pips. Would be nice to see you lay your experience on it.

  5. Thanks sir, it was a wonderful analysis.I have a question about that, will it still achieve the target of 116.35/70?
    Because a bearish rejection developed on Thursday.

    1. Stumbled to ascending trendline of lows of July 2012 and June 2016. Rejection was strong. Heading for the upper trendline of the formed ascending channel
