FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Eur/yen has bounced sharply from the April 28th spike low at 124.40. However, the 5 wave decline from the Apr 6th high at 137.40 (see numbering on daily chart below) suggests that these recent gains are a correction, and with an eventual resumption of the declines back to the 124.40 low and even below after.

Currently, the market is chopping from its recent high at 132.85, potentially completing an important top and suggesting a resumption of the bigger picture declines ahead. For now, want to be short and would resell here (currently at 131.25).

However, the confidence that a top of that magnitude is not yet extremely high, so would use an aggressive stop on a close above the month long bearish trendline (currently at 132.70/85) to compensate (lower risk offsets the somewhat lower confidence). Note that even a break above there would not change the bigger picture view of eventual declines below 124.40, and would be looking to resell at higher levels if taken out.

Further resistance above there is seen at 134.20/35 while support before the 124.40 low is seen at 129.75/90 (earlier spike low) and 128.60/75 (50% retracement from the 124.40 low). Unfortunately missed the buy area from the Apr 28th email at 125.70 (for the countertrend bounce), said David Solin, analyst at FXA.com.
