“This mixed picture will further complicate the implementation of PM Shinzo Abe’s new economic program (called “Abenomics 2.0”), which is expected to be announced soon. There is growing speculation that the increase in the consumption levy from 8% to 10% scheduled for next year will be delayed due to tepid inflation.

In March, CPI fell 0.3% yoy, its fastest pace in three years, and April inflation data next Friday are likely to show a further slowdown. Given the negative impact of the sales-tax hike on consumption, a delay should be regarded as JPY-positive, but the renewed USD strength does not call for a rapid USD-JPY slide; we still see the cross at 1.08 by year-end.”
