GBP/JPY finally finds a base sub 178 handle

FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/JPY is trading at 177.69, down -0.27% on the day, having posted a daily high at 180.73 and low at 177.55.

GBP/JPY has come off in the advent of a secured Britain, “Better together” victory while the Yen was traded out of leveraged positioning and Sterling continues to slide on a high greenback and profit taking in the cross that unfolded. Fundamentals will play their part again though, firstly it will be interesting to see if the G20 weekend meeting will have any mention of currencies, then we will pay note of the weakness of the Yen and whether that has come about too soon and too fast.
