What is GBPJPY?

GBPJPY is the forex pair that shows investors how many Japanese Yen (JPY) are needed to buy a British Pound (GBP). The Pound is one of the most traded currencies in the world, while the Japanese Yen is just behind the USD and EUR in terms of trading volumes. Japanese Yen is a safe haven currency and is often used as a funding currency of trade because it is a low yielding currency.


GBPJPY is a volatile pair. Since the British economy is one of the largest economies in Europe and the sixth-largest economy in the world, the GBPJPY pair can be considered as a proxy for global economic health. The Japanese economy, on the other hand, is the third economy in the world just behind the USA and China. GBPJPY performs like a representer for market ‘risk-off’ moves as the carry trade gets reversed. On our website, you can find the latest GBPJPY news and GBPJPY forecasts.
