Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

This is not national CPI but rather that for Tokyo. Its not necessarily a perfect guide to what national inflation will be for November, but its something of a guide.

Tokyo CPI 0.8% y/y, higher than expected 
  •  expected 0.6%, prior was 0.4%
Tokyo CPI excluding Fresh Food 0.6% y/y, a core measure, in line with estimates
  • expected 0.6%, prior was 0.5%
Tokyo CPI excluding Food, Energy 0.7% y/y, also a core measure & in line with estimates
  • expected 0.7%, prior was 0.7%
National CPI data will come out in 3 weeks.   
The BOJ target for core inflation is 2%. Its not even close.
