You don’t have to wait for the next geopolitical event to know where the yen is headed next

On July 22, USDJPY -- a.k.a. the Japanese yen -- experienced a sharp intraday drop.

The market has recovered since then -- i.e., the yen fell against the dollar. Now, the thinking is that the next big move will largely depend on geopolitics – specifically, the events in Ukraine and Gaza.
"Until the market gets a better sense of the trajectory of those events, you can expect some residual caution," said a forex strategist on July 18 (The Wall Street Journal)
From an Elliott wave perspective, however, the next move in the yen is already becoming clear.
Says Jim Martens, the editor of our Currency Pro Service:
“The dollar is quiet. Traders might be looking forward to the data due Thursday morning. Jobless Claims, the PMI Manufacturing Index, and new Home Sales are all due.
“Surprises are likely to work against the dollar, though we suspect weakness will prove corrective.
“I'm still watching for any move that advances our expectations.”

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
