Note that this is the first reporting month of data since consumption tax went up to 8% from 5% on April 1st. - Also in Japan, a former BOJ dissenter and one of the more dovish board members Shirai said she was confident the central bank would achieve its inflation target, but also noted it could take more than 2 years under the current flexible targeting. She also noted that easing would continue after FY15/16 and cautioned that policymakers need to see the impact of next sales tax rise before judging if 2% inflation stable. Recall that up until the most recent BOJ decision, Shirai wanted the BOJ to express more concern over the pace of improvement in employment and income situation in its "Risks to Outlook" section of the statement. - Australia released its Q1 CAPEX data, and while the main figure missed estimates for the 2nd consecutive quarter of deceleration, AUD shot higher on upgrade in FY14/15 spending projections.
