    Russian rates on the chopping block
    Russia's central bank is expected to cut rates today, but it's in a bit of a tough spot. Consensus expects a 50 bps drop, but the bank's credibility will be hurt if it has to reverse the move in the near future (to boost the rouble, perhaps).

    Japan's CPI barely budges as households keep wallets shut

    CNBC
    The Bank of Japan's efforts to reach its 2% inflation target didn't get much of a boost from the latest data, with the country's core consumer price index for June barely budging and as households unexpectedly snapped their wallets shut. Leslie Shaffer writes Japan's core CPI, which excludes fresh food, rose 0.1% on-year in June, a tad above the 0.0% forecast in a Reuters poll. The "core-core" CPI, which excludes both food and energy prices, rose 0.6% from a year earlier. But household spending unexpectedly fell 2.0% on-year in June, sharply underperforming expectations for a 1.7% rise.

    Rouble heading towards crisis again

    Rouble heading towards crisis again
    History does not repeat itself exactly, but the increase in short rouble positions seen in mid-July is eerily similar to what happened in mid-October last year. At that time, the rouble tumbled within weeks and it might well do so again.

    3 Numbers: European PMIs edge higher, US PMI and new home sales
    The trading week ends with a whiff of the future in the shape of July's flash purchasing manager indices – no big surprises are expected, and the moderate recovery will probably be the main issue. In the US, a post-crisis high in new home sales will help set the stage for the next week's meeting of the Federal Reserve, which may begin to signal a rate hike in September.
