Japanese Yen Could Correct to 119.00 Next Week

[B]Commentary[/B]: Bigger picture, the USDJPY has traced out 5 waves lower (which is large wave 1)from 124.13 to 111.59, indicating a large degree trend change. Since the low at 111.59, it is our contention that an A-B-C correction is unfolding as large wave 2.

Within this A-B-C, wave C might be underway from 113.86. We wrote yesterday that “a break above 116.24 warrants a bullish stance against 115.22, targeting 119.34 (61.8% of 124.13-111.59) for the completion of wave C (wave 2). The best opportunity will be to the downside for wave 3 lower. This most likely will not present itself until next week.” The pair did break above 116.24 so favor the upside until 119.34 (we will look for a top and reversal near there next week).

[B]Strategy[/B]: Flat (waiting for wave 3 bearish opportunity)
