JPY/GBP - 1 Year Trend

Outlook and forecasts for JPY and GBP

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the JPY vs GBP, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Japanese Yen and British Pound Sterling:


Japanese Yen (JPY) outlook

The yen was the star performer in the weeks leading up to this report (May-17), with appreciation driven by a flight to safety following a serious escalation in the US-China trade war. The benchmark yen rate, USD/JPY, was down in the mid-109s, having been as high as 112.4 in late April. Relatively speaking, against their April highs, other yen rates had fallen even more (NZD/JPY was down from 76 to 71.6).

In May, HSBC warned against thinking that yen-supporting safe-haven flows would soon stop, implying that the yen could have more upside potential in the near term. The bank highlighted the “desolation and destruction” (an exaggeration) present in many major economies and currencies. “You can never get too high,” the bank’s chief analyst said.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) outlook

Nine straight days of losses against the euro in May took the pound to a 3-month low of €1.143, and similar losses against the US dollar meant quotes in the low $1.28s — also a 3-month low.

Sterling weakness has returned following a breakdown in the UK of cross-party Brexit talks, which has brought “no deal” back to life.

It seems nothing much has changed: PM Theresa May has announced that she will ask the House of Commons to vote again on her withdrawal deal in early June (the deal has already been rejected three times).

A fourth defeat for May’s plan is widely expected and would make no-deal much realer, with little time to organize any alternative before the October-31 exit date (unlikely to be extended). It remains possible, however, that Brexit is cancelled entirely.

Why can't I just get the JPY/GBP market rate I see online or in the media?

The JPY/GBP mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the JPY / GBP was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
