Close short GBP/JPY position; profit protection at 132 triggered

Our GBP/JPY stop loss (profit protection) at 132 has been triggered. Better than expected UK
data (inflation, employment and retail sales) triggered a recovery in the GBP from below 1.29
to above 1.31 against the USD. Since initiation on 19 July, our bearish view on GBP/JPY has
yielded almost 6%.

We keep in place our HUF long versus EUR and NOK long versus EUR

We keep our HUF long versus EUR and NOK long versus EUR in place on our high conviction
list. For more details please refer to our FX Convictions – Add HUF long versus EUR, FX Convictions – Positive on Norwegian Krone.
