    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Sterling was offered across the board after the BOE took a surprisingly dovish stance, pushing the GBP/JPY pair lower for the first time in seven days.

    Drops below hourly 100-MA

    The cross now trades below its hourly 100-MA located at 186.45. The Bank of England vote count remained unchanged at 8-1, while it lowered its GDP and CPI forecasts lowered and also expressed concern regarding the strength in sterling. Carney delivered a major blow by expressing a willingness to cut rates and extend QE if downside risks materialize.

    The pair is now trading around 186.30 after having hit a low of 186.00.
