  • Japan’s retail sales dropped at the fastest pace since 2000 last month as the first consumption-tax increase since 1997 depressed consumer spending.
  • Second estimate of 2014/15 CAPEX was stronger than market expectations which offsets the weaker headline number and supports the markets view that the RBA will likely stay the course.
