The latest CPI data could make that more challenging going forward. Nationwide CPI slowed to an 11-month low of 2.0% y/y, but when adjusted for April's consumption tax, that rate of CPI screeched to a halt of zero - the first time that prices failed to show y/y growth in nearly two years. Undeterred, PM Abe reiterated there was progress being made on exiting deflation while also promising to reach the goal of primary balance surplus by FY2020. Leading inflation figures in the Tokyo area were in line with consensus, but retail sales disappointed and household spending also continued to fall. USD/JPY still traded without much direction within a 40pip range above 119.- AUD/USD was the biggest mover among the dollar majors in an otherwise quiet session ahead of Friday's final Q4 US GDP report. The aussie fell about 40pips below the $0.78 in the aftermath of another decline in China industrial profits. The dataset reflected Jan-Feb period, stripping away seasonality around the holiday period. Economist with China stats bureau attributed the decline to lower prices, rising costs and significant profit declines in the oil and coal industries - some of Australia's key exports to China. Elsewhere, property developers saw some modest strength on a statement from Chinese Ministry of Land and Resources, calling on certain cities to halt new land supply and control the pace of construction.- After a Yemen-conflict driven steep rally in oil markets yesterday, the retreat evident in US session continued during the Asian hours. May crude was down about a $1, as Goldman Sachs remarked that Saudi strikes on Yemen or any nuclear deal with Iran would only have negligible near-term impacts on oil (over)supply. ***Equities***US equities / ADRs:- OXM: Reports Q4 $1.08 v $1.04e, R$274.5M v $274Me; Raises quarterly dividend 19% to $0.25/shr; Announces sale of Ben Sherman business, terms not disclosed; +11.8% afterhours- YHOO: Announces additional $2B share repurchase program (4.8% of market cap) - filing; +2.2% afterhours- PBR: Chairman Guido Mantega to resign; Names Luciano Galvao Coutinho as new chairman - financial press; -0.4% afterhours- RH: Reports Q4 $1.02 v $1.01e, R$582.7M v $582Me; -4.4% afterhours- GME: Reports Q4 $3.15 v $2.18e, R$3.48B v $3.60Be; -5.8% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: Toray Industries 3402.JP +2.3% (press speculation on FY14/15 results); Panasonic Corporation 6752.JP +4.2% (M&A plan); Air China Ltd 753.HK -1.3% (FY14 results); Haier Electronics Group 1169.HK -2.7% (FY14 results)- Financials: Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd 601398.CN -0.9% (FY14 results); Bank of Communications 601328.CN -0.8% (FY14 results); China Merchants Properties 000024.CN +4.1%, Poly Real Estate 600048.CN +1.9%, China Vanke 000002.CN +1.2% (China issues statement to limit housing construction and land supply)- Materials: Mitsui Mining & Smelting 5706.JP +4.0% (FY14/15 guidance); Whitehaven Coal WHC.AU +1.7% (lending facility); BBMG Corp 2009.HK -2.1% (FY14 results)- Energy: Shunfeng Photovoltaic International 1165.HK +3.8% (FY14 results)- Technology: Mesoblast Ltd MSB.AU +2.5% (announces key patent in Japan)- Healthcare: Shanghai Pharmaceuticals Holding 2607.HK -1.0% (FY14 results) - Source
