    The pound is falling sharply (again) against the yen. For the second time out of the last three days is losing 300 pips or more. GBP/JPY started the day above 155.00 and during the American session bottomed at 151.65, the lowest level since August 2013.

    Currently it trades at 152.20/30, down 285 pips from yesterday’s closing price and down 4% since the beginning of the week and 5.60% so far in April.

    While the pound remains among the weakest currencies in the market ahead of the Brexit referendum, the yen has gained momentum with the sharp decline of USD/JPY.
