GBP/JPY tied to 134.00 as bullish recopvery momentum fades

  • The Sterling is struggling to hold onto Thursday's recovery mode, and the pair could be setting up for a fresh fall from 134.00.
  • Broad market went risk off to start Thursday action as investors brace for a global growth slowdown.

GBP/JPY is trading back down into 134.20 after catching a mild intraday recovery into the 135.00 handle after broader markets took a tumbled on renewed risk aversion.

Thursday brings only UK Construction PMIs at 09:30, expected to clock in at 522.9 (last 53.4),  but with overall market sentiment constrained in the bearish side, Guppy action could see very limited upside as risk appetite remains thoroughly soured from the early day's risk-off rush.
