Data released by the Japan Auto Dealers Association

The data measures domestic sales of cars, trucks and buses in the country.

A slightly sharper than expected decline, and the pattern is that we're seeing a slowdown maybe in the auto sector in Japan. Though there have been much worse readings in the past.

Just a minor hiccup, but still an indicator of what consumer/business spending patterns are in the country.

USD/JPY trading at 112.58 now, a little higher on the day so far.
