GBP/JPY keeping close to the week's high end
- GBP/JPY finds itself on the upside, buoyed above the 140.00 key level.
- Market risk sentiment appears to be holding itself upright for the time being.
GBP/JPY is trading on the high end, testing above 140.30 as market sentiment remains on-balance and the Sterling continues to recover from this week's decline-and-bounce on the UK's Brexit vote.
The Guppy ticked into a low near the 139.00 level yesterday before reversing and setting a new high for the week at 140.70, and the pair remains bid into near-term highs for the time being, despite the UK's RICS Housing Price Balance for December, which clocked in at -19%, down from the -13% forecast and the previous reading of -11%.
Next up for the Yen-based pairs will be a showing from the Bank of Japan's (BoJ) Governor Kuroda, who will be delivering notes at the ongoing G20 meeting in Osaka, Japan. Kuroda is expected to speak at 03:20 GMT.
