Data released on Friday showed that Japan’s consumer prices fell at their sharpest pace since 2013 in May. The core consumer prices dropped 0.4% from a year earlier, raising expectations that BoJ will have to act again to shore up inflation.

Another data from Japan showed that the country’s unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.2 per cent in May, meeting the analysts’ expectations.

Eurozone Unemployment declined to 10.1 percent in May, representing the lowest level in nearly 5 years. The rate has declined for the last three consecutive months. “Given that at least some eurozone firms will probably delay their hiring plans after the fallout of the UK’s vote to leave the EU, we still think that the ECB has a lot more work to do if it is to stand any chance of hitting its inflation target in the medium term”, said Stephen Brown at Capital Economics.

According to the report from the Institute for Supply Management, its index of manufacturing activity increased to 53.2 in June from 51.3 in the previous month.
