    FXStreet (Córdoba) - After moving in a range during several days between 178.90 and 180.30, GBP/JPY broke to the downside today on European hours and dropped further, extending the decline that started back in November 18 from 188.80.

    Price accelerated below 179.00 and bottomed at 178.10, the lowest level since April 21. Afterwards, it managed to stabilize and during the last hours it has remained steady, consolidating losses, trading in a modest range between 178.50 and 178.15.

    A weak pound across the board pushed the pair to the downside on Tuesday.
