Japanese All Industry Activity Index

Today, the Japanese All Industry Activity Index, which captures the monthly change in overall production by all industries of the Japanese economy was released by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

In another release, the Merchandise Trade Balance report was published by the Ministry of Finance. The outcome was disappointing, as the trade surplus was ¥496.2B, less than the forecast of ¥615.4B in Oct 2016.

Overall, the British Pound may decline a few pips towards 136.50 vs the Japanese yen, but it remains supported.
