Key Quotes

"For GBP Crosses, we see additional upside to 183.98 (50 %) in GBP/JPY as long as key-support between 176.38 and 175.38 (minor 38.2 %/pivot) is defended."

"The mirror image is displayed in EUR/GBP where the downside looks to be open for an extension to 0.7755/44 (2012 low/50 %) as long as key-resistance between 0.7886/97 and 0.7940 (minor 38.2 %/daily trend/pivot) is not taken out. Above the latter though, we’d expect a stronger recovery to 0.8036 if not to 0.8177 (int. 38.2 % on 2 scales), which would have to be cleared to reverse the broader downtrend."

"GBP/CHF remains vulnerable to a stronger setback to at least 1.4917 (minor 38.2 %) as long as 1.5486 (2012 high) is not broken."

Japan Corporate Service Price (YoY) registered at 3.5%, below expectations (3.7%) in August
