    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Sterling is extending losses across the board ahead of the UK data, pushing the GBP/JPY pair to a session low of 186.87 levels.

    Double top on hourly chart

    The pair appears to have formed a double formation after having faced rejection at 187.50. A similar failure was witnessed last Thursday following which the pair fell to 186.11 before making another failed attempt at 187.50 today.

    The UK October CPI numbers due in the next few minutes could decide the if the pair drops to the neckline support at 186.11 or reverses trend to take out the double top formation level of 187.50.

    GBP/JPY Technical Levels

    The pair currently trades at 186.95. The immediate support is located at 186.11, under which the pair could drop to 184.72. On the other hand, a break above 187.50 would expose 188.28 (Sep 17 high).
