Nikkei225 is the biggest decliner, falling over 2% below 14,000 mark amid continued JPY strength. This is a 6-month low for the Japanese index, and for the year, Nikkei225 is now down a whopping 15%. - Bank of Japan released the minutes of its March meeting when it cut its assessment of exports but raised output and capex. The minutes showed that members agreed easy policy is working steadily, prices are moving in line with forecasts, and weakness in exports would be temporary. Economic data from Japan continued to show modest deterioration, most notably with corporate goods price growth slowing to a 9-month low. - China released mixed inflation figures for the month of March. CPI was in line with consensus at 2.4%, arresting a decline of 5 consecutive months and quelling concerns over consumer inflation after last month's figure fell to a 13-month low of 2.0%. PPI remained in negative territory for 25th consecutive month, which should keep investors unnerved over the possibility of wholesale deflation feeding into retail trends. We should also note that Feb-Mar period saw an abrupt reversal in CNY strength, potentially helping on the inflation front. - In Australia, Bank of Queensland reported H1 net profit down 34% y/y at A$134.7M and Rev rose 8%.
