from Dave:

Japan core CPI last night came out at 1.9% as expected

Petrol products were up +23.9% y/y

Non fresh food products were up +3.5% y/y

Core-Core CPI (ex energy and ex fresh food) rose +0.1% vs -0.1% in the previous month indicating some signs of higher energy and food prices filtering through the economy to other products and services

Price pressures continue to grow at the corporate level (see graph of Corporate Services Price Index CSPI and Corporate Goods Price Index CGPI)

Expectations from many dealers and BOJ’s Mizuno is that CPI could reach as high as 2.5% by the fall
