Japan’s July consumer prices take a steep fall…

Japan’s core consumer prices fell for a fifth consecutive month and marked the biggest annual drop in more than three years in July on weak consumption.  The disappointing data keeps the central bank under pressure to expand an already massive stimulus program while it reinforces a dominant market view that premier Shinzo Abe’s stimulus programs have failed to combat deflation. The nationwide core consumer price index fell 0.5 percent in July from a year earlier. Weak energy prices are also weighing on inflation rendering the BOJ monetary stimulus measures largely ineffective.

European Stock Indices Futures trade flat ahead of the opening…

European Stock Indices Futures are currently trading flat after E.U. stock markets took a steep fall during yesterday’s session on weaker commodity and healthcare shares. Today, all major European futures are trading flat as investors will be waiting for Fed Chair, Yellen’s speech at Jackson Hole today which is expected to give a clearer indication as to when the next rate hike will take place. Germany’s DAX futures were last seen trading 4 points lower at 10516.0 while France’s CAC 40 added 0.1 percent to last trade at 4396.5. U.K.’s FTSE 100 futures traded flat at 6815.2 while Euro Stoxx 50 futures added 0.1 percent to last trade at 2982.0 as of 6:20 GMT.
