Japan exports improve most since 2010 over 10%

We seeing Abenomics arrow 1 & 2 having a huge effect on the exports.
That’s one full quarter of improving result , showing that the market is going right way .

Lets hope this continues .the big test will be the up and coming election , if Abe wins then we can see some proper structural changes , if he gets 2/3 majority we can see some constitutional changes !

The third arrow missed the target the first time hope his next aim is better

Japan exports improve most since 2010.

It has been three years since Japan enjoyed this level of exportation. In May, shipments shot up 10.1% from the previous year, marking the third consecutive month of improvement.

Shipment exports picked up in key markets such as the US, rising 16.3% from a year earlier, whilst shipments to China increased 8.3%.

A weaker Yen boosted exporters’ business in May, as it made Japanese goods cheaper overseas, thus increasing profits in an industry that Japan largely depends on.

Such positive date therefore boosts Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s plan to revive the economy.

Morgan Stanley Analyst Shuji Tonouchi explained that the breakdown shows that export volumes are still a little weak, but demand from the United States is ‘doing well’. Overall, he added, “We can certainly say that exports are headed in the right direction”.

On the other hand, imports also rose by 10% in May from a year ago and therefore, the trade balance came to a deficit of 993.9bn yen. This marks the 11th straight month that Japan has posted a deficit, as energy import costs continue to be high after nuclear plants were shut down.

Dollar’s upside capped at ¥95 level | The Japan Times

Without a clear policy from both sides, FED on wether it will start to taper QE and when . then from Abe on his policy on his 3 arrow . Abe will do nothing until the election is over .

Until then 95 will be the norm , but personally I see the USD strengthening in the short term ,commodities weakening also .

UK pension rises are at risk – Webb

UK pension rises are at risk – Webb.

Pensions minister Steve Webb said that nobody could guarantee the survival of the ‘triple lock’ system after the next general election.

The triple lock system, which ensures that sure the basic state pension will always rise according to the highest of average earnings, inflation, or 2.5%, has so far kept pensions on an upwards path. It has so far been key to maintaining the ‘grey vote’.

But Webb’s comments are the latest in the fiery debate in Parliament over whether the advantages offered to pensioners can be sustained.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Webb said that in 2015, each party would say what it would do about the triple lock. He said he was personally in favour of keeping it, but that the issue would have to be discussed as a party.
Benefits for high income pensioners are also set to be trimmed down.

Webb said that in light of an increasing generation gap in intergenerational equity, it was unfair to expect “our children and grandchildren [to just do] more and more.”

“Remember that guy that gave up ?neither does anybody else “

Got to thank James Green for sending me this .

Who remember who quitters ?

Lets lock and load

It’s going to be a cracking week .
