There is no trade call for the session due to the holiday. Given it’s Good Friday, there are Bank Holidays in Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada. There are also several US states which observe state holiday. Therefore volumes are extremely thin and we do not plan to trade until next week. Later today we have US Final GDP release at 12:30pm GMT.
Japanese CPI was released during the Asian session. Tokyo CPI Ex-Food & Energy for March was at 0.6% y/y, above expectations of 0.5%. The monthly rise was 0.5%. Nationwide CPI Ex-Food & Energy for February rose 0.8% y/y, above expectations of 0.6%. The BoJ measure remained steady at 1.1% y/y.
