GBPJPY rally from 1/16 low (136.42) is unfolding as a 5 waves impulse which is expected to complete wave ((i)) of a Minute degree, as shown below in the 1 hour Asia chart from 1/19/2017. As far as momentum divergence is intact between wave (iii) and wave (v) of Minuette degree, the impulse structure remains valid. If RSI divergence is erased, then the structure would become a double three i.e. ((w))-((x))-((y)) and rally can extend to 142.85 – 143.73 area before cycle from 136.42 low ends and we get a pull back in the pair.
Elliott wave theory suggest that after a 5 waves move (unless 5 waves complete wave C of a FLAT structure), there should be a 3 waves pull back and another 5 waves move in the same direction higher. So after finishing the first leg higher in wave ((i)), pair should see a 3 swing pullback soon today before another extension higher happens in 5 waves as far as pivot at 1/16 low (136.42) remains intact.
