Key Quotes

“A small surplus was expected. Exports rose a mere 0.6% compared with expectations for a 3.8% increase. In volume terms, exports have fallen nearly 4%. It is hard to see how so many people think a 3.5% decline in the Chinese yuan will help boost their exports while a much larger decline in the yen has failed to boost the volume of Japanese exports.”

“It is also noteworthy that the volume of Japan's oil imports rose 1.1%, despite the weakness in the domestic economy. In value terms, oil imports are off 44%. These trade figures do not alter our expectation that the BOJ stands pat next week.”
