Today’s Forecast for Important Trading Indicators
|Time in GMT||Country||Indicator||Expected||Previous|
|09:30||UK||Prelim GDP q/q||0.4%||0.6%|
We had the huge end-of-month data dump from Japan;
- Headline CPI
- Core CPI
- Core-core CPI
- Household spending
- Unemployment rate
- Job-To-Applicant Ratio
- Retail Sales
- Industrial production
- To keep it brief inflation results were (as expected) way below target still, household spending fell again, retail sales gained, and industrial production slowed from recent strong results, and finally industrial production for which the outlook is for a sharp rise in the April figures. It seems despite all the news and data flow out of Asia, the market wants to wait for US GDP today. USD/JPY popped to 111.30 (just above) and then down to 111.10 (just below) for a narrow range also.
- We also got some news from New Zealand and Australia but the currency movement was very subdued as if no one was paying attention. EUR, CHF, AUD and NZD are all little changed against the USD after small ranges only.
- Cable managed to move itself a little higher, and is above 1.2900 and it is looking like it has the potential to move higher. USD/CAD has had a small range but it also starting to make its way higher.
