Japan trade data coming up soon - exports at risk of falling short of expectations (again)

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

Japanese exports and import data from March is due at 2350GMT

  • rade balance: expected Y 363.2bn, prior was Y 334.9bn
  • Trade balance (adjusted): expected Y -242.5bn, prior was Y 116.1bn
  • Exports y/y: expected -2.6%, prior was -1.2%
  • Imports y/y: expected 2.8%, prior was -6.7%
As you can see, analysts expect exports to have shrunk again in March (y/y) … but as a heads up given China's import numbers for March were quite poor the Japan exports number may well be worse than the -2.6% median estimate.

Yen impact? Well, its Japanese data, so you know what to expect for the yen...  i.e nothing!
