The GBP/JPY pairing is a high risk, volatile currency combination, aptly termed ‘The Widow-Maker’. It is defined by large movements in price relative to most other pairs; indeed, during the financial collapse of 2008, it moved over 7,000 pips, a phenomenon that was simply unheard of.

Depending upon your individual trading style, this volatility is either a very good thing, or a very bad one. The GBP/JPY traits mean that it’s an optimal choice for traders looking for volatility or large movements, but it should only ever be traded where protective stop-loss orders are used. The significant risks it poses make it highly unsuitable for novices, but turn it into an ideal moneymaking instrument for those with more experience and a libertine approach to risk.

If the GBP/JPY currency combination would sit well in your portfolio, contact FxPro today.
