    The headline figure topped forecasts for a surplus of 415.4 billion yen and a 24.9 percent annual contraction after showing a surplus of 215.1 billion and a 62.6 percent plunge in May.
    The trade balance reflected a surplus of 112.0 billion yen, down 13.7 percent on year. That missed expectations for a surplus of 114.9 billion yen following the downwardly revised shortfall of 941.0 billion yen in the previous month (originally -848.2 billion yen).
    Exports shed an annual 1.5 percent to 5.422 trillion yen in June. That follows the 11.3 percent jump in May, which came in at 5.054 trillion yen.
    Imports eased 1.2 percent on year to 5.310 trillion yen in June, after posting an annual increase of 11.1 percent in the previous month to 5.902 trillion yen.
    Goods and services saw a deficit of 81.5 billion yen in June after showing a shortfall of 941.0 billion yen a month earlier.
    The financial account saw a deficit of 2.041 trillion yen, while the capital account posted a surplus of 18.8 billion yen.
    The adjusted current account showed a surplus of 773.6 billion yen, beating forecasts for a surplus of 714.7 billion yen after coming in at 282.2 billion yen a month earlier.
    Also on Wednesday, the Bank of Japan said that bank lending in Japan was up 1.0 percent on year in July, standing at 396.424 trillion yen. That beat forecasts for an increase of 0.8 percent, which would have been unchanged from the June reading.
    Including trusts, bank lending was up an annual 0.7 percent after shedding a downwardly revised 0.6 percent in the previous month. Lending from foreign banks in Japan plummeted an annual 22.4 percent to 2.163 trillion yen after plunging 20.6 percent on year a month earlier.

    Singapore GDP Falls 0.7% On Quarter In Q2

    Singapore's gross domestic product contracted a seasonally adjusted 0.7 percent in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the previous three months, the Ministry of Trade and Industry said on Friday.
    That's an improvement from last month's advance reading that called for a 1.1 percent contraction. GDP was up 9.5 percent in the first quarter.
    GDP was down 2.5 percent on quarter in Q4 2011, up 1.5 percent in the third quarter and up 0.9 percent in Q2.
    On a yearly basis, GDP was up 2.0 percent, up from the 1.9 percent advance reading and also up from the 1.5 percent increase in the previous three months.
    The manufacturing sector was the key detriment as it contracted 0.5 percent on quarter after surging a revised 20.8 percent in the previous three months. The sector climbed 4.5 percent on year.
    "The pull-back in quarter-on-quarter growth was largely due to the decline in externally-oriented sectors such as electronics manufacturing, as well as wholesale trade and tourism-related services," the MTI said in a statement accompanying the data. "Growth in the electronics cluster remained weak, while the transport engineering and biomedical manufacturing clusters provided growth support."
    The construction sector added 5.3 percent on year, slowing from the 6.9 percent growth in the preceding quarter. On a sequential basis, the sector decelerated to 0.9 percent from 27.9 percent in the preceding quarter, largely due to a slowdown in construction activities in the institutional and others segment, the ministry said.
    The wholesale and retail trade sector contracted 0.4 percent on year, following the 0.3 percent decline in the previous quarter. On a quarter-on-quarter basis, the sector contracted by an annualized rate of 0.4 percent, mainly due to the deterioration in the wholesale trade segment. The transportation & storage sector grew at a moderated pace of 1.6 percent on year, and 7.2 percent on quarter.
    Growth in the finance and insurance sector was flat at 0.1 percent on year, down from 0.5 percent in the preceding quarter. On a quarter-on-quarter basis, the sector grew at 2.1 percent (annualized), largely due to continued sluggishness in sentiment-sensitive activities such as stock market trading, the MTI said.
    While the business services sector added 3.0 percent on year, it was down 3.0 percent (annualized) on quarter as economic uncertainty weighed down on business and management consultancy activities.
    Upon the release of the data, the Ministry of Trade and Industry narrowed its GDP growth forecast for 2012 to 1.5 to 2.5 percent; originally, it was 1.0 to 3.0 percent.
    "Given the macroeconomic backdrop, the growth outlook for the Singapore economy remains cautious," the MTI said. "Externally-oriented sectors, in particular electronics, wholesale and tourism-related services, will be affected by the slowdown in advanced economies. Continued uncertainties in the external environment will also weigh down on sentiment-sensitive segments within the finance and insurance sector. Nonetheless, there will be modest support to growth from healthy expansion in the transport engineering cluster and construction sector."

    Japanese Economy Slows More Than Expected

    Japan's gross domestic product added just 0.3 percent in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the previous three months, the Cabinet Office said on Monday in a preliminary reading - suggesting that the recovery from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami remains stuck in neutral.
    The headline figure missed forecasts for an increase of 0.6 percent following the 1.6 percent gain in the first quarter.

    On a yearly basis, GDP added 1.4 percent - also shy of expectations for a jump of 2.5 percent following the 4.7 percent gain in the previous three months.
    In a statement accompanying the release of the data, Economics Minister Motohisa Furukawa pointed out that the Japanese economy is growing and is expected to continue to do so in Q3 and beyond.
    "Japan's economy continues in an uptrend led by domestic demand," he said.Furukawa acknowledged the slowdown, citing the persistent debt woes in Europe as the chief culprit.

    Nominal GDP fell 0.1 percent on quarter, missing forecasts for a gain of 0.4 percent after collecting 1.2 percent in the three months prior.
    The GDP deflator dropped an annual 1.1 percent versus forecasts for a contraction of 0.8 percent, but up from the -1.3 percent showing in the first quarter.
    Private consumption was up just 0.1 percent on quarter, missing forecasts for an increase of 0.3 percent.

    External demand eased 0.1 percentage point from GDP, while domestic demand added 0.4 point, the data showed.

    Australian Business Conditions Deteriorates, Confidence Improves in July - Nab

    NAB' survey of businessman revealed that Business conditions deteriorated to -3 from -1 in July but confidence was up sharply at +4 from -3
    Deteriorating profits (-7) and falling retail sales (-3) remained the main reason behind the fall in conditions, while , progress in European debt crisis may have boosted business confidence according NAB economist
    Index of employment was up 3 points to -1


    "The persistent divergence in industry conditions indicates that the Australian economy is undergoing a structural transformation towards mining and service-based industries, and away from traditional manufacturing and discretionary retailing,"
    "If the RBA were to lower rates again, it would most likely occur at the back-end of this year and this would require a material slowing in the labor market and domestic activity,"

    Qe can be adjusted According to Funding for Lending Scheme, Believes Boe's Fisher

    UK economy may or may not require more QE and C bank should be ready to do so, depending on success of Funding for Lending scheme, said BoE's Fisher in article by FT


    "It's very much an alternative. QE's all about putting money into the economy. With Funding for Lending we're not injecting any cash into the economy,"

    "The amount of cash in the economy can be regulated through QE. Then we can adjust that according to how well the Funding for Lending scheme works."

    "Not participating in the scheme and not lending will be seen as a negative. We want to get banks to do what we want in their own interest,"

    "If Europe were to completely fall over - it's a remote risk, but suppose it does - then the impact of Funding for Lending might be to just keep lending going at its current rate,"

    "If we don't get a fall over in Europe, then I'd like to see some return to positive, sustained growth in lending,"

    BoE's Fisher
