GBP/JPY dips on stronger Yen as Tertiary Industry Activity Surprises!
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
The Japanese cross currency [[GBP/JPY]] took a steep dip of more than 50 pips. The Japanese Yen is gaining strength because of two reasons:
- Sell-off in the stock market has boosted the demand for haven assets, thus the investors are moving their investments into the Japanese Yen.
- Japanese Tertiary Industry Activity surprises the market by gaining to 0.5% vs. a dip of -0.1% previously. It shows a change in the total value of services purchased by businesses.
The bearish momentum in GBP/JPY seems to get weaker as the pair is reaching near a solid support level of 148.300. It’s actually an intra-day pivot level which is likely to determine the overall trend for the Guppy (GBP/JPY). Below 148.300, the pair is likely to fall deeper towards 147.850.
Key Trading Level: 148.32
