The day kicks off some data from Japan that is unlikely to have an immediate impact:

  • Monetary base for May and international flow of securities. That's at 2350GMT

0130GMT from Australia brings the April trade balance, again not likely to be too much of a market mover, though interest in monitoring exports has increased after their huge contribution to the blow out Q1 GDP results

0130GMT - Australia again - Retail Sales for April, expected +0.3% m/m and prior +0.4%

Also at 0130GMT, BOJ policy board member Takehiro Sato is speaking at a meeting with business leaders
