A breakdown reveals that a 0.9% increase in the all-Japan core core CPI, up from 0.7% in October, contributed to the rise in the core CPI. Forecasts for CPI data to be released this month: CPI data to be released at 8:30am on 29 January: We expect both the all-Japan core CPI for December and the Tokyo ku-area core CPI for January to come in at +0.1% y-y. In both cases, this would be the same increase as for the previous month. Special feature: Measuring the benefits to households from lower energy prices: The price of the energy used by households each month has declined by ¥3,776 since peaking in July 2014. A breakdown reveals a marked decline in gasoline prices. Our view of the JGBi market: as the JGBi market had already corrected, the JGBi auction was uneventful; however, the decline in the price of crude oil continues to weigh heavily: Although the auction on 13 January was uneventful, the price of crude oil continues to weigh heavily. Unless the price stops declining, we expect the upside for inflation-indexed Japanese government bonds to be limited until the April auction. However, we consider current levels attractive for long-term investors.” For more information, read our latest forex news.
