Everyone wants to share the profit, no one wants to share the losses.
Very well said. I sure have not seen anyone who has made even 600 pips from that drop of GBP/JPY but I sure have seen many margin calls. They made the spread like 550 pips. so trust me the spread alone would of closed the sellers, as they need to get out on the ASK price which remained near where it dropped! That is how the market can hit brokers hard or the brokers who bet against their clients can get manipulated very easily!
Wow what a move on Eur/Gbp if that was a mistake it should pull back down to 88 levels again,saying that traders act foolish after times like this,wouldn't surprise me if it shot back up.Anyway I think HFT on thin liquidity,there was chat during the week of a huge short position on Gbp.

Pure speculation everywhere.
1. Asia scare on news of possible hard Brexit. 2. Algorithmic trading going haywire on low volumes. 3. Gold finger tycoon (a George Soros of Asia type event) 4. Nigel Farage had a nightmare (not really, but may as well throw it in)
Seems nobody knows, or will ever know exact reason, and every definitive answer is a variation of speculation noise.
For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.
