The preparation for Brexit allocated 3 billion pounds

The EURUSD pair spent the first half of Wednesday in a narrow lateral channel, while traders were preparing for the release of the Federal Reserve's minutes.

Data on the US economy hurt the upward momentum of the US dollar.

According to the report, the number of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits for the first time has declined. This indicates a recovery of the labor market after the autumn hurricanes.

According to the US Department of Labor, the number of initial claims for unemployment benefits for the week from 12 to 18 of November fell by 13,000 and amounted to 239,000. Economists had expected the number of new applications last week to be 240,000.

A good report on the labor market was offset by weak data on orders for durable goods in the US, which fell in October, much worse than economists predicted.

Such data indicates that Americans are making less expensive purchases, which will negatively affect US manufacturers.

According to the US Department of Commerce, orders for durable goods in October 2017 decreased by 1.2% compared to the previous month, amounting to 236 billion US dollars. In September, orders rose by 2.2%. Economists predicted an increase in orders by 0.2%.

As for the technical picture of the EUR/USD pair, only a breakout of the 1.1755-60 range would lead to a larger upward wave in the trading instrument with an update of 1.1800 and a monthly peak output in the area of 1.1860. If the Fed's report contains something interesting about the prospect of tightening monetary policy in December of this year, the demand for the US dollar may rise, which will lead to a return towards the region of large levels of support at 1.1680 and 1.1640.

The British pound strengthened its position against the US dollar following the speech of the Ministry of Finance in the UK. Hammond said that the ministry is preparing for any possible outcome of Brexit, and that the preparation allocated 3 billion pounds.

Furthermore, the economic forecast was lowered, according to which the GDP of the UK for 2017 will grow by only 1.5%, and not by 2%, as predicted earlier. Forecast GDP growth of 1.4% in 2018 and 1.3% in 2019. As Hammond noted, lowering growth forecasts is due to weak labor productivity.

Euro does not have enough momentum

The euro returned to the high of the day following the release of upbeat data for Germany and the eurozone as a whole, indicating a resurgence of economic growth in the 3rd quarter of this year.

According to the data, Germany's economy in the third quarter of this year has expanded due to growth in exports and investments of companies. The report of the National Bureau of Statistics of Germany Destatis says that the gross domestic product in the third quarter of 2017 increased by 0.8% compared to the previous quarter. Compared to the same period in 2016, GDP grew by 3.3%.

Germany's exports in the third quarter grew by 1.7% compared to the previous quarter, while investments increased by 1.5%.

The Manufacturing PMI in Germany also increased significantly, reaching 62.5 points, better than the forecasts of economists, who expected growth to reach 60.4 points.

The sentiment in the manufacturing sector of France rose in November. According to the report of the National Bureau of Statistics of France, Insee, the composite index of purchasing managers in France rose to 60.1 points in November, compared to 57.4 points in October. The Bureau of Statistics also pointed out that the broader indicator of confidence increased by two points in November, to 111 points.

The euro zone's purchasing managers index can also provide good support to the European economy, which will lead to an increase in demand for the European currency at the end of the year.

According to the research company IHS Markit, the index of supply managers in November 2017 rose to 57.5 points from 56.0 points in October.

Minutes of the ECB did not lead to a new wave of growth in the euro.

The report indicates that the ECB management at the meeting in October had differed on the timing of the completion of the quantitative easing program. However, it agreed to assess the impact of the program of buying corporate bonds. It should be noted that the European Central Bank announced that it is extending the program of bond purchasing until September 2018. However, since December of this year, the volume of monthly purchases will be reduced to 30 billion euros from 60 billion euros earlier.

As a result of the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, market volatility remains low. The technical picture remained without significant changes.

Buyers of risky assets are prepared to enter new monthly highs. However, in order for this to happen it is necessary to break through a large resistance of 1.1840, which may lead to an increase in long positions and an update to levels like 1.1880 and 1.1910.

AUD/USD testing major resistance, time to start selling

The price is testing major resistance at 0.7629 (Fibonacci retracement, horizontal overlap resistance, channel resistance, Fibonacci extension) and we expect to see a strong drop from this level to push the price down to at least 0.7537 support (Fibonacci extension, horizontal swing low support).

Stochastic (55,3,1) is seeing strong resistance at 96% where we expect a corresponding reaction off. Correlation analysis: NZDUSD is similarly expecting a strong drop.

Sell below 0.7629. Stop loss isat 0.7670. Take profit is at 0.7537

The dollar weakens against the backdrop of political threats

Adjusted data on US GDP in the third quarter were better than expected, the growth rate was revised to 3.3%, and by all means, the US economy is recovering successfully. This is despite the fact that the Congress has not yet approved the draft of the tax reform.

However, the main factor of positive growth is not so much the growth of the economy as the growing consumer activity. According to the updated data, in the third quarter, the personal consumption expenditure index was 1.4%, and not 1.3%, as previously reported. This was released the day after the data on personal incomes in October also outperformed forecasts, with growth at 0.4% against expectations of 0.3%.

The market reacted positively to the reports, while the data on business activity in the manufacturing sector released by ISM on Friday made it possible to revise the forecast for US GDP in the fourth quarter to reach 3.5%, reflecting generally confidently positive expectations.

At the same time, it should be noted that the positive dynamics of consumer activity is not due to fundamental changes. The simplest calculations show that the growth of expenses is not based on revenue growth, but on the growth of lending, which in turn reflects certain hopes associated with the future tax reform. The growth of expenses in terms of the potentially able-bodied population is growing steadily, while personal savings are falling and have already reached the pre-crisis level of 10 years ago.

Thus, a certain revival of the consumer sector is associated with hopes for a reduction in tax pressure. If, however, the approval of the reform program in the Congress faces difficulties, then in this case one can expect a sharp decline in consumer activity and an increase in deflationary expectations.

The grounds for such fears are: On Friday, the Senate postponed the vote on the tax reform, the stumbling block was the report of the Tax Committee, from which it follows that the reform will not lead to filling the budget and the deficit will remain at the level of at least $1 trillion in a 10-year perspective. The economic analysis of the tax reform plan by the Minister of Finance Mnuchin has not yet been released. Therefore, the financial effect of the reforms may not be the same as the government represents. Before the markets closed on Friday, the final vote in the Congress did not take place, which ultimately contributed to the depreciation of the dollar.

Another reason for the fall of the dollar is that former adviser to Donald Trump, Michael Flynn, who was accused earlier of providing false information to the FBI, is prepared to testify against Donald Trump. If this news is confirmed, the opponents of Trump will have good reasons for initiating the impeachment procedure, which will automatically put an end to the tax reform program.

This scenario can lead to a rapid reduction in inflation expectations and will call into question the possibility of the Fed to implement the outlined plan for the growth rate in 2018, and the dollar will drop sharply against the yen and the euro. Fears remain hypothetical, but the dollar is losing momentum.

On Monday, the dynamics of the dollar will be determined. First of all, by political news related to the passage of the tax plan through the Congress and the development of the situation with Flynn. Acceptance of the tax plan is of fundamental importance in the light of approaching the date of December 8. Namely, before this date, the law on financing state institutions due to borrowing is in force.

On Tuesday, the ISM report on business activity in the services sector will be published, after a rapid growth in August-October, a slight slowdown is expected, but the level of PMI will remain high and can support the dollar.

In general, the dollar remains the favorite, and any positive news can contribute to a new wave of buying. However, one must assume that the probability of a smooth phased solution of all the issues at the beginning of this week is not very high, and therefore the growth of the euro to 1.20 appears quite certain.

Euro and pound will be determined with direction

Eurozone
The euro area economy continues to expand at a steady pace, GDP growth in Q3 was 0.6%, at an annual rate of 2.6%, preliminary data was revised upwards, which is consistent with the overall economic trend.

Growth is primarily due to increased investment and exports. Despite the fact that household expenditures have decreased somewhat, the general level of optimism continues to improve, as indicated by the recent reports of ZEW and IFO.

On Wednesday, a report on industrial production will be released, on Thursday - PMI Markit index. This will be the latest data ahead of the ECB meeting, they will help to predict the overall tone of the commentary and the position of Mario Draghi at a subsequent press conference.

On Thursday, investors do not expect the ECB to decide to make any concrete steps, since there is no reason for this yet. However, forecasts for economic growth and inflation will be updated upwards, as indicated by both growing business activity in recent months and rising oil prices.

The euro as a reaction to the meeting of the FOMC may decline to a support level of 1.1670, growth is limited to the level of 1.1880.

United Kingdom

The pound on the eve of the meeting of the Bank of England on December 14 is seent to be positive. According to Halifax, housing prices have stabilized after more than a year of decline and activity in the construction sector decreased. The inflation forecast published by the Bank of England rose from 2.8% to 2.9%, the trade deficit instead of expanding has unexpectedly remained virtually unchanged. Sufficiently, the industry appears much better, which was clearly facilitated by the protracted period of the weak pound, which supported the export industries.

The industrial sector is growing for the sixth month in a row, on an annualized basis, growth was 3.9%, which is higher than expected

The National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR) reports that, according to their calculations, UK GDP growth for the last 3 months was 0.5%, which exceeds both the indicators of the beginning of the year and 0.4% in the third quarter.

These factors increase the likelihood that the Bank of England will continue to gradually raise rates, and will also contribute to the growth of the pound. Although at the next meeting, the Bank of England will not raise the bid, the general trend is in favor of an increase, which is clearly a bullish factor for the pound.

On Friday, there was news that the UK and the EU agreed on three key points in the first phase of the Brexit talks. The border between Ireland and Northern Ireland was agreed upon, migration policies concerning the rights of EU citizens in the UK, and, most importantly, London's payment for the withdrawal from the EU. Thus, the first phase of negotiations is completed, and at the EU meeting on December 14, it will be possible to announce the progress achieved. This news will strengthen the positions of both the euro and pound.

The pound, nevertheless, will still be under pressure, since there are no serious internal drivers in the coming week. Presumably, a decline towards 1.3250 as an intermediate target and 1.2850 as a long-term goal.

Oil
China, which is the world's major oil consumer, supported the growing trend on Friday, posting significantly higher than expected trade balance data in November. Crude oil imports increased by 19.37% in November, demand remains firmly high, which, combined with a number of restrictive measures by OPEC + and significant financial losses of shale companies in the US, contribute to the formation of a stable demand against the backdrop of stable production in the context of the price war with OPEC. Together, these factors support oil, which allows us to predict a breakthrough of resistance at 63.50 for Brent in the short term.

Pound fled from politics

A busy economic calendar and the departure of political risks into obscurity allows us to hope for the return of investors in actively trading the pound. Semiannual negotiations between London and Brussels, judging by the statements of the latter, were completed successfully, which makes it necessary to shift attention to macroeconomic data. In general, there is plenty of data at the beginning of the second week of the month for the UK. Inflation, the labor market, retail sales and the meeting of the Bank of England will satisfy even the highest demands of trade analysts on the news.

The fall of sterling in response to positive news from the negotiation table on Brexit has become a classic example of the implementation of the principle of "buy on the rumor, sell on the facts." Traders sold the GBP/USD quotes on the factor of harmonizing the conditions of the divorce between Britain and the EU, and the message that the round-the-clock work was over and the issue of the Irish border was resolved. This launched a wave of selling against the backdrop of profit taking. Moreover, popular media referring to competent sources reported that the trade deal before the spring of 2018 will not be achieved. However, the bridgehead is laid, and the bulls on sterling, including Nomura and ING, believe that the reduction of political risks of the UK will push the GBP/USD pair in the direction of 1.4 in 2018 and 1.36 in the near future.

On the contrary, "bears" criticize the agreement that was reached, blaming it for lack of details, and referred to the futures market, where the value of options to sell sterling is higher than the purchase. Derivatives are used for risk insurance, and the current dynamics of an indicator such as the risk of reversal (the ratio of premiums on call and put), indicates that investors still fear the sterling's collapse.

Dynamics of the ratio of premiums on options

Source: Bloomberg.

On the other hand, speculators in the futures market held a net long position on the pound for 6 of the last 10 weeks, although before that they acted as net sellers for 98 five-day consecutive days.

Lately, there have been too many news with political coloring, and it's time for the sterling to turn its focus on the economy. In general, the outlook for upcoming releases is moderately positive. Bloomberg experts do not expect inflation to exceed the critical level of 3%, while the acceleration of average wages from 2.2% to 2.5% y/y. In addition to that, the exit from the negative territory of retail sales inspires optimism for bulls in the GBP/USD pair. Moreover, it is beneficial for the Bank of England to maintain a strong pound with the help of "hawkish" rhetoric, and the dollar cannot take advantage of strong data on the US.

It is possible that the growth of the fiscal deficit as a result of the implementation of the tax reform, the reluctance of Donald Trump to see the US currency strong and the recovery of the economies of the competing countries will force the USD index to restore the downward trend in 2018.

Technically, the GBP/USD pair is preparing to retest the upper bound of the previous consolidation range at 1.304-1.332. Assuming that it, like the previous one, ends with the defeat of the "bears", the likelihood of a restoration of the uptrend in the sterling will then increase.

BTC/USD reacting off our selling entry perfectly, remain bearish

Bitcoin has reached our selling area and is reacting off it nicely. We remain bearish looking to sell below 17459 resistance (Fibonacci extension, bearish price action, bearish divergence) for a drop towards at least 14739 support (Fibonacci retracement, horizontal overlap support).

Stochastic (34,5,3) is seeing major resistance below 98% and also displays bearish divergence vs price, signaling that a reversal is impending.

Reason for the trading strategy (fundamentally):

Bitcoin January futures (which are contracts that let investors buy or sell something at a specific price in the future) price are about $17,800 which is rather close to where we forecast major resistance. This is in line with the immediate resistance we're seeing on the technical side so it would be safe to start looking to short Bitcoin for a correction.

Sell below 17459. Stop loss is at 18770. Take profit is at 14739.

British income levels drop

The British pound did not pay attention to data on pay cuts in the UK from August to October of this year, and this could negatively affect retail as well as GDP growth.

Let me remind you that the fall in real incomes of citizens started last year, when the UK decided on a vote to leave the EU. According to the report, from August to October 2017 compared with the same period of last year, real wages fell by 0.4%. The unemployment rate in the UK for the same period remained unchanged at 4.3%. Economists expected a drop in the unemployment rate by 0.1 percentage points.

As for the pound's immediate prospects, much of it will depend on the decision of the Bank of England on Thursday. Although it is projected that the regulator will leave interest rates unchanged. It will be important to know how the members of the Committee on Monetary Policy will vote for constant interest rates and quantitative easing.

If the Bank of England mentions good progress in Brexit talks during the comments, it will also benefit the British pound, which can significantly strengthen its positions against the US dollar.

As for the technical picture of the GBP/USD pair, further growth is directly dependent on the breakthrough of a large resistance located in the area of 1.3375. Levels that are above 1.3425 and 1.3480 are considered good. In the event of a channel breakout in the lower limit of 1.3300, one can expect an increase in pressure on the pound with a decline towards 1.3225 and 1.3150.

Inflation data in Germany slightly affected the quotations of the European currency during the first half of Wednesday, as it coincided with the forecasts of economists.

According to a report of the statistics agency, the final consumer price index of Germany in November this year increased by 0.3% compared with October. Economists also expected the index to increase by 0.3%. As for the same period for 2016, prices have increased by 1.8% overall.

As for the important events in the afternoon, attention should be focused on the Fed hiking the interest rate, as well as a signal about what will be the acceleration of the normalization of monetary policy next year.

As for the technical picture of the EUR/USD pair, the bulls managed to win back Tuesday's euro decline in the afternoon and returned to the intermediate level of support 1.1740 without much difficulty. While the trade is going above this range, we can count on a further upward trend for the euro with an update of 1.1775 and an exit to weekly highs around 1.1810.

ECB leaves rates and economic forecast unchanged

The euro met with minimal hesitation at the key decision of the European Central Bank this week.

According to the data, the European Central Bank left the refinancing rate unchanged at 0.0%, while stating that interest rates will remain at current levels for a long time after the end of the asset purchase program.

Many experts expected that the ECB would make hints on the gradual tightening of monetary policy by the time of the completion of the curtailment of the asset repurchase program, which is scheduled for the end of next year. However, as we can see, this is not included in the plans of the ECB and there are a number of objective reasons for this. At the very least, this is the missing price pressure, which is kept quite low for quite a long time even after good economic growth in the second and third quarters of this year. The labor market in the euro area also shows growth but the rate of increase in wages is far from ideal.

The ECB also revealed that they will reinvest funds received from the redemption of bonds for a long period after the completion of the curtailment of the asset purchase program.

In the morning, preliminary data on the PMI supply managers' index for France's manufacturing sector for December came out. It rose significantly to 59.3 points versus 57.7 points in November. Economists had expected PMI for the manufacturing sector to be at 57.1 points.

A similar preliminary index of supply managers PMI for Germany's manufacturing sector for the month of December this year rose to 63.3 points against 62.5 points in November. Economists expected the index to fall to 62.1 points.

As for the euro area as a whole, the preliminary composite index of supply managers for the euro zone's PMI in December this year increased to 58.0 points with a forecast at 57.3 points, which is slightly lower than the November figure of 57.5 points. In the second half of the day, data on the US labor market came out.

According to a report by the US Department of Labor, the number of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits last week declined. Thus, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the week of December 3 to 9 decreased by 11,000 and amounted to 225,000. Economists predicted that the number of applications would be at 235,000.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for December 19, 2017

Wave summary:
EUR/JPY is back testing the broken minor support-line, which now acts as resistance. This former support, now resistance, is expected to cap the upside for more downside pressure towards the pivot point at 131.14, which needs to be broken to confirm that wave (D) completed at 134.50 and wave (E) now is developing towards the ideal target seen at 123.43.

Short-term a break below minor support at 132.10 confirms more downside pressure towards 131.14.

R3: 133.89
R2: 133.76
R1: 133.00
Pivot: 132.10
S1: 131.70
S2: 131.14
S3: 130.56

Trading recommendation:
We are short EUR from 133.40 with stop placed at 133.80.

AUD/JPY reversing nicely below major resistance

The price has started to form a really nice reversal pattern with bearish divergence being formed. We look to sell below major resistance at 86.67 (Multiple Fibonacci retracements, horizontal overlap resistance, bearish divergence) for a push down to at least 84.69 support (Fibonacci extension, horizontal swing low support).

Stochastic (55,3,1) is seeing major resistance below 98% where we expect a corresponding drop from. We're also seeing bearish divergence vs price signaling that a reversal is impending.

Sell below 86.67. Stop loss is at 87.34 Take profit is at 84.69.

Wave summary:
The break above resistance at 134.50 told us that wave (D) still is developing and more upside towards the "old" 137.37 target should be expected to complete wave (D) and set the stage for the final decline within the huge triangle consolidation, that has been developing since July 2008. Support is now seen at 134.40 and again at 133.84. The later should be able to protect the downside for more upside closer to 137.37.

R3: 136.05
R2: 135.75
R1: 134.90
Pivot: 134.40
S1: 133.84
S2: 133.57
S3: 133.24

Trading recommendation:
We will buy EUR at 134.10 and place our stop at 133.40.

The US dollar returns to the game

Data in the first half of the Thursday exerted pressure on the European currency, not allowing it to get beyond its weekly highs against the US dollar. According to the report of a statistics agency, the level of confidence in the manufacturing sector in France in December of this year declined. Thus, the index of sentiment of companies in the manufacturing sector was at 112 points against the November value of 113 points. Despite this, a high level of confidence supports the economic growth of France. Restrained demand for the euro is also associated with early parliamentary elections, which took place in Catalonia. It is expected that the majority of seats in parliament can go to parties that advocate integrity, and which are against the independence of Catalonia. Coupled with another result, the pressure on the European currency may rise again. Weak data on the annual growth of US GDP in the 3rd quarter of this year did not allow the US dollar to further strengthen its positions against the European currency in the afternoon at the beginning of the US session. According to the report of the US Department of Commerce, the US economy in the third quarter of this year expanded by 3.2% compared with the same period in 2016, which is lower than the previous estimate. According to the previous estimate, the annual growth of US GDP in the third quarter was 3.3%. Economists forecast that GDP will remain unchanged at the level of 3.3%.

The main reason for the decline in the indicator was consumer spending, which dropped further during the reporting period than previously thought. Growth was noted in company investments and exports.

As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, an unsuccessful attempt to get beyond the resistance level of 1.1885 led to the expected downward correction in the trading instrument, which will likely be limited to support levels around 1.1830 and 1.1805.

The British pound rose after data on reduced borrowing of the UK public sector. According to the report, in November of this year, the net borrowing of the UK public sector decreased and amounted to 8.7 billion pounds compared to the same period of last year. As noted in the report, borrowing declined due to increased tax revenue.

As for the technical picture of the GBPUSD pair, it is likely that the pressure on the pound will continue and that will lead to a decline in the trading instrument towards the lower border of the channel to the area of 1.3330 and 1.3300, from which it was possible twice to see the return to the market of large buyers of the British pound.

Inflation continues to grow in Japan

Weekends and holidays are always accompanied by a low volume of trades against the background of lack of important fundamental statistics.

Most likely, serious and purposeful movements will not be formed in the pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD before the end of this year.

Some leading experts expect that the growth of the US economy next year will significantly accelerate due to the approved program of tax cuts, and also due to an increase in government spending. Do not forget that at the end of last week, US President Donald Trump signed a new tax bill with a total cost of $ 1.5 trillion, which the budget will not be counted on.

According to economists of Goldman Sachs, the measures taken by the White House administration will lead to a larger GDP growth in 2018. According to the data, the US GDP in 2018 will grow by 2.6%, and 1.7% in 2019. These data were revised upwards by 0.3% and 0.2%.

Economists of J.P. Morgan also expects more significant growth in consumer spending, which will stimulate the economy of the country, adding to the previous forecast of 0.2%. In J.P. Morgan forecasts, the US GDP growth of 2.1% next year.

As for the technical picture of the EUR/USD pair, it did not change significantly compared to the forecast at the end of last week. Only a confident exit to the resistance level 1.1880 will lead to the formation of a new upward wave, with an update of the monthly highs of 1.1900 and 1.1935.

The data on consumer price growth in Japan did not lead to significant changes in the USD/JPY pair, even despite the increase in the index which is a positive sign for the Bank of Japan.

According to the report of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan, the base consumer price index in November rose by 0.9% compared to the same period of the previous year after an increase of 0.8% in October. While economists expected the index to grow by 0.8%.

The general consumer price index rose by 0.6% in November after rising to 0.2% in October this year. Economists predicted an increase of 0.5%.

Despite the lack of strong impetus, prices continue to grow for 11 consecutive months, which makes the Bank of Japan feel more relaxed.

The index, excluding the prices of fresh food and energy, rose by 0.3% compared with the same period in 2016 after an increase of 0.2% in October.

Today, the unemployment rate in Japan in November 2017 fell to 2.7% from 2.8% in October, as the number of jobs increased. As indicated in the report, there were 100 applicants in November who had 156 jobs compared to 155 in October.

Prepare to sell below major resistance

The price is approaching major resistance at 113.76 (76.4% Fibonacci retracement, Fibonacci extension, horizontal overlap resistance) and we expect a strong reaction off this level to push the price down to at least 112.13 support (Fibonacci retracement, multiple horizontal swing low support).

Stochastic (55,3,1) is dropping nicely from our 97% resistance with good downside potential.

Sell below 113.76. Stop loss is at 114.54. Take profit is at 112.13.

Wave analysis of the EUR / USD currency pair for December 29, 2017

Analysis of wave counting:
In a thin inter-holiday market, the EUR/USD pair was able to add about 60 pp in price and re-tested to the level of the 19th figure in the second half of yesterday. It can be assumed that the currency pair has reached the final stage of the formation of the wave c, in b, in c, in a, in (C). If this is the case, the pair can resume reduction quotes and mark the beginning of a future wave in a, and in (C) after virtually reaching the highest level achieved yesterday or after the growth to the level 1.1920-1.1930.

Objectives for building a downward wave:
1.1736 - 38.2% by Fibonacci
1.1666 - 23.6% Fibonacci retracement
Goals for building an upward wave:
1.1900
1.1918 - 11.4% Fibonacci retracement

General conclusions and trading recommendations:
The construction of the downward trend section continues, as well as the construction of the assumed wave b, in c, in a, in (C). If this assumption is correct, the quote will resume its increase with targets around 19 figures and the mark of 1.1918. Hereinafter, a decline in quotations may resume with the targets located near the calculated marks of 1.1736 and 1.1666, corresponding to 38.2% and 23.6% Fibonacci, and lower.

Wave analysis of the USD / JPY currency pair. Weekly review

Analysis of wave counting:
At the end of last week, the pair USD / JPY still began to decline, losing about 90 pp and was able to work out the mark of 112.50 in the middle of the Friday session. Thus, it seems that the currency pair has attempted to confirm the transition to the stage of formation taking a rather complex form of the waves c, b, a, (C). If this is the case, then in the process of the development of the wave structure of this wave c, b, a, (C), the currency pair can continue the already identified downward movement in the direction of the levels of the 111th or even 110th figure.

Targets for the downward wave option:
111.01 - 50.0% of Fibonacci
110.14 - 61.8% of Fibonacci

Targets for the upward wave option:
115.43 - 61.8% of Fibonacci
116.32 - 76.4% of Fibonacci

General conclusions and trading recommendations:
The pair USD / JPY continues to build the upward wave (C). Thus, the increase in quotations may continue within the wave c, a, (C) with targets located near the estimated levels of 115.43 and 116.32, which corresponds to 61.8% and 76.4% of Fibonacci (these goals will be reviewed). The assumed wave b, a, (C) can resume its construction, complicating its internal wave structure.
