How to trade GBPJPY

To do this, you need to constantly apply GBPJPY technical analysis and fundamental analysis of the UK and Japanese markets.

The GBPJPY live chart allows you to compare the current state of the trend and analyze the history of price movement for this currency pair.

It is worthy of note that the pound is the most expensive world currency. As a result, the GBP JPY live price is quite high and a lot of money is required for trading. The GBP JPY quote is two-digit, so one pip equals 0.01 or around $12 when buying 1 lot. The cost of 1 lot is about $400 if you use 1: 500 leverage.

As you can see, the GBP JPY live price is rather expensive, but you can also practice it using a demo account provided by forex brokers.

Despite its popularity, the GBP JPY real-time chart is a highly volatile currency pair, and it is better for newcomers who do not understand GBPJPY technical analysis to bypass it. Due to its “capricious” nature, this currency pair is called “dragon” or “royal pair” among some traders. GBPJPY live chart is characterized by a relatively small spread, large volumes of trading operations, high volatility, and the ability to use carry trade (swap trading) in the strategy.

The pair is recommended to be used by fairly experienced traders since the STG to yen rates are rather unpredictable and sometimes the trend moves even in defiance of GBP JPY news.

The STG to yen depends on the policy of the National Bank of Japan and the demand for goods produced by this country.
