    Japan's gross domestic product tumbled 6.8 percent on year in the second quarter of 2014, the Cabinet Office said in Wednesday's preliminary reading.

On an annualized quarterly basis, GDP dipped 1.7 percent - also beating expectations for a contraction of 1.8 percent following the downwardly revised 1.5 percent increase in the previous three months (originally 1.6 percent). The GDP deflator was up 2.0 percent on year, beating forecasts for 1.6 percent after easing 0.1 percent in the first quarter.

    New Zealand Manufacturing Sector Slows Slightly



    The manufacturing sector in New Zealand continued to expand in July, albeit at a slightly slower pace, the latest Performance of Manufacturing Index from Business NZ revealed on Thursday with a score of 53.0. That's down marginally from the upwardly revised 53.4 in June (originally 53.3). A reading above 50 signals expansion in a sector, while a score below means contraction. The index has been in expansionary territory for 22 straight months. All five individual components expanded in July, including new orders, production, employment, finished stocks and deliveries.

    Sri Lanka's Central Bank Keeps Rates Unchanged



    Sri Lanka's central bank decided to leave its key interest rates unchanged on Friday as the outlook for inflation remains benign. The Central Bank of Sri Lanka kept its Standing Deposit Facility Rate unchanged at 6.50 percent and the Standing Lending Facility at 8.00 percent. The bank has kept its key rates unchanged for the seventh straight meeting. The bank last reduced its lending rate by 50 basis points in January and narrowed the rate corridor. Although headline inflation accelerated to 3.6 percent in July from 2.8 percent in June, it continued to remain in low single digit levels, it noted. Supply disturbances triggered by adverse weather conditions could cause temporary price fluctuations, but the outlook for inflation remains benign supported by relatively stable international commodity prices as well as well contained demand pressures and inflation expectations, the bank said. Further, the bank expects real economic growth to remain broadly on target this year and broad money to grow around 13 percent by end-2014, down from the prior estimate of 14 percent. With Sri Lanka's economy staying robust in recent months, there is no urgent need for monetary policy easing to support growth, Krystal Tan, an Asia economist at Capital Economics, said. On balance, if credit growth picks up in the coming months as expected, rates are likely to remain on hold for the rest of the year, the economist said

    RBA Keeps Rates Unchanged



    The Reserve Bank of Australia, or RBA, decided on Tuesday to keep its key interest rate unchanged. The monetary policy board decided to maintain the cash rate at 2.5 percent in its August meeting. The same rate has been maintained since August 2013. "Members noted that there was inevitably a significant degree of uncertainty about the outlook, given the number of forces working in different directions." the RBA said in the minutes. Despite recent higher readings, inflation is expected to be in line with the target of 2-3 percent over the next two years, the Board said. The Board assessed that the current monetary policy was appropriately configured and remained accommodative and supportive of demand. The most prudent course is likely to be a period of stability in interest rates, the Board said.

    Australian Dollar Rises Ahead Of Yellen's Jackson Hole Speech



    The Australian dollar strengthened against the other major currencies in the Asian session on Friday ahead of Fed Chair Janet Yellen's speech at the economic symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The two-day Economic Symposium that began on Thursday in the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank's economic symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is attended by central bankers, finance ministers, academics, and financial market participants from around the world in the New York session. The meetings are closed to the press but officials usually talk with reporters throughout the day. Comments and speeches from central bankers and other influential officials can create significant market volatility. Yellen will speak on the labor market at the summit. Traders look ahead to the speech for further cues on the monetary policy outlook. European Central Bank's governor Mario Draghi and Bank of Japan's governor Haruhiko Kuroda are also due to deliver some potential market moving headlines. The Asian policymakers are closely monitoring to get some clues from the discussion of setting next week's labor market dynamics from Yellen's speech. Traders are more concerned of any sign of rising global rates will spark a new wave of outflows. The Australian dollar rose to a 14-month high of 96.76 against the yen, from an early low of 96.56. If the aussie extends its uptrend, it is likely to find resistance around the 96.90 area. Against the euro, the aussie rallied to a 1-month high of 1.4248 from an early low of 1.4279. The aussie may test resistance near the 1.41 area. The aussie, which closed yesterday's deals at 0.9301 against the U.S. dollar, firmed to a 3-day high of 0.9318. This may be compared to an early low of 0.9299 against the greenback. On the upside, 0.937 is seen as next resistance level for the aussie. Moving away from an early low of 1.0174 against the Canadian dollar, the aussie advanced to a 2-day high of 1.0193. Continuation of bullish trend may lead the aussie to a resistance around the 1.02 mark. Against the NZ dollar, the aussie edged up to 1.1092 from an early low of 1.1062. At yesterday's close, the aussie was trading at 1.1062 against the kiwi. The aussie is likely to find resistance around the 1.11 area. Looking ahead, Canada CPI for July and retail sales data for June are due to be released in the New York session.

    NZ Dollar Slides After Trade Data



    The NZ dollar weakened against the other major currencies in the Asian session on Tuesday as nation's trade data showed a wider-than-expected deficit for April.

    Data from the Statistics New Zealand showed that New Zealand saw a merchandise trade deficit of NZ$ 692 million in July.

    The NZ dollar fell to nearly a 9-month low of 1.1168 against the Australian dollar and a 6-month low of 0.8310 against the U.S. dollar, from early highs of 1.1137 and 0.8346, respectively and held steady thereafter.

    Against the yen and the euro, the kiwi dropped to a 6-day low of 86.49 and a 5-day low of 1.5863, from early highs of 86.85 and 1.5801, respectively and held steady thereafter.

    Looking ahead, U.S. durable goods orders for July, house price indexes for June based on two separate surveys by the Federal House Finance Agency and the S&P/Case-Shiller and consumer confidence index for August are due to be released in the New York session.
