Economic data due from Asia today - Wednesday 13 September 2017

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

On the list of known unknowns today (economic calendar edition):

2245GMT -New Zealand - Food Price inflation for August, prior -0.2% m/m
2350GMT - Japan - Quarterly Business Sentiment Index (BSI), data is derived from a survey of large Japanese firms.
  • For Q3 2017
2350GMT - Japan - PPI (formerly known as Corporate Goods Price Index (CGPI))

m/m for August:

  • expected 0.1%, prior 0.3%

& y/y

  • expected 3.0%, prior 2.6%

0030GMT - Australia - Westpac's monthly consumer confidence index, for September

  • prior -1.2% m/m to a sad 95.5
  • prior was the ninth consecutive month where pessimists are outnumbering optimists

This tends not to be an immediate FX mover but is useful data nonetheless. The weekly consumer sentiment data (ANZ /  Roy Morgan) has been on a poor trend, while business confidence and conditions have been much stronger (yesterday's business confidence fell sharply, though: AUD update - on session lows after NAB Business Survey)

0110GMT - Bank of Japan JGB purchases
  • in the 5 to 10 year maturity window today
  • and 3 to 5 yrs
  • and 1 to 3 yrs
(dunno why I can't just say in the 1 to 10 year windows, but there you go. ;-))
