GBP/JPY drops after UK data

FXStreet (Mumbai) - Sterling was offered across the board, taking the GBP/JPY pair to a session low of 182.29 after the UK CPI printed lower than expected.

Nears key support

The cross is trading few pips away from 182.26, which is the 61.8% retracement of the move from 180.66-184.85. Sterling came under pressure after the official data in the UK showed the cost of living as represented by the consumer price index (CPI) in September printed at -0.1%. The core inflation also missed estimates to print unchanged at 1.0%.

Meanwhile, the losses in the European stocks are supporting the safe haven Yen and adding to the bearish move in the pair.
