The outcome was in line with the forecast, as the RICS Housing Price registered a rise of 22%. The statement released mentioned that the “results show that new instructions continue to drop. Anecdotal evidence cites a lack of choice, uncertainty due to the calling of an early election and the ramifications of stamp duty changes as factors hampering activity”.

Overall, the GBPJPY may drop a few pips towards 147.50, but remains in an uptrend in the near term.
