The GBP/JPY pairing is a high risk, volatile currency combination, often refereed to as the ‘The Widow-Maker’. It is defined by large movements in price compared to other pairs. In fact, during the financial collapse of 2008, the pair moved over 7,000 pips; a phenomenon that was simply unheard of.
Depending upon your individual trading style, this volatility is either a highly desired or highly disliked. The GBP/JPY is an optimal choice for traders looking for volatility or large movements, but it should only ever be traded where protective stop-loss orders are used. This pair's significant risks make it highly unsuitable for novices but it however is an ideal moneymaking instrument for those with more experience and a libertine approach to risk.
