GBP/JPY stuck to 136.00 as recovery runs out of steam

  • The Guppy is struggling to hold onto the key 136.00 level as bearish pressure continues to build.
  • Thursday's bullish push looks set to run out of momentum heading into the week's end.

GBP/JPY is trading into 136.00, strung out at the major technical level after Thursday's drop into 131.51 saw a recovery bounce into 1.13680, but the Sterling is struggling to maintain positive momentum, and the Guppy is beginning to sink back into downside territory.

Market confidence in the GBP remains tethered to Brexit developments, and with no immediate good news expected, the Pound is left to waffle against the safe-haven Yen, with trepidatious markets keeping one foot firmly planted in the risk-off currency as global growth continue to mark in evidence of a steepening slowdown, and investors await a fresh round of bearish headlines to knock them back into sell positions.
