    Here's something else to worry about...

    As markets brace for a Greek sovereign default within hours, nerves are on edge as the prospect of a Grexit looms closer. But that's not all we have to worry about. Fresh data from Eurostat reveals that Eurozone CPI barely budged in June. The spectre of deflation rears its ugly head once more.

    Euro area inflation has ticked lower, but unemployment is unchanged:

    Inflation cooled a bit in the euro area in June, according to a preliminary Eurostat estimate. Consumer prices are up 0.2% in June compared to the same month a year ago - when oil prices started their descent - while core consumer prices are up 0.8%. Both figures were expected and come on the back of prints of 0.3% and 0.9%, respectively, in May. A lower base effect (due to oil prices) may help push inflation up a bit in the second half of the year, but inflation will stay low as spare capacity is plentiful.

    The unemployment rate is unchanged this month at 11.1% - highlighting the amount of spare capacity. The unemployment rate is so far down only 1 percentage point from the peak in 2013 despite two years of (admittedly modest) growth. Employment is growing though.

    EURUSD is trading down 0.7% at 1.1160 so far today.

    BoJ happy to talk, just not about easing

    Managing Director / Technical Research Limited
    New Zealand
    Japan's CPI came in at 0.1%, and the 2% target remains elusive. A recent report from the IMF states that the BoJ needs to stand ready for further easing and provide stronger guidance to markets. While there is no indication, the BoJ agrees with the former advice, it has adopted the second and will now release forecasts for economic activity and inflation on a quarterly basis rather than semi-annually.
