    • Keeping the BOJ under pressure, Japan core consumer inflation slowed to 0.7% in November, largely due to sliding oil prices. The figure was far below the central bank's 2% target.
    • Factory output unexpectedly fell and real wages marked their steepest drop in five years, dealing a blow to PM Shinzo Abe's stimulus policies aimed at pulling the world’s third-largest economy out of stagnation.
    • The Nikkei closed slightly up at 17,819.

    • A new ¥3.5T yen ($29B) stimulus package is expected to be approved by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's cabinet on Saturday.
    • Japan is looking to give a quick boost to lagging regional economies and low-income households with subsidies, merchandise vouchers and other schemes.
    • The plan will also urge the Bank of Japan to hit its 2% inflation goal as quickly as possible, and promise to do its utmost to halve Japan's primary budget deficit in the fiscal year starting next April, to curb a runaway public debt.

    • Japanese shares rallied today following the Fed's upbeat assessment on the U.S. economy and report that the country will spend up to $30B in stimulus.
    • Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to finalize the stimulus package on Dec. 27, as part of efforts to lift the economy out of a recession caused by the hit from a sales tax hike in April.
    • Pulling away from a 6-1/2-week low, Japan's Nikkei share average jumped 2.3%, ending up 17,210.

    • Japanese stocks fell today, drawing little momentum from Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's landslide win in a snap election over the weekend.
    • The Nikkei closed down 1.6% at 17,099, as oil prices sank to fresh 5-1/2 year lows, hitting energy and commodity stocks and exporters.
    • The win for Abe ensures further reflationary economic policies ahead, but record low voter turnout points to broad dissatisfaction with his performance.

    • Japan’s economy shrank more than initially reported in the third quarter, contracting 1.9% as capital spending declined and private consumption remained weak.
    • Last month, the government estimated that GDP contracted 1.6% during the July-September period.
    • The revised data confirms Japan slipping into recession less than a week prior to general elections that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has framed as a referendum on his economic policies.
    • Despite the news, the Nikkei inched up 0.1% to close at 17,936.

    • Japanese shares gained ground today as a weaker yen and falling oil prices boosted exporters, supporting investor sentiment.
    • The Nikkei benchmark added 1.2% to 17,459.85, climbing over 10% since the BOJ stunned markets with stimulus just one month ago.
    • However, the massive asset-purchase scheme is crushing debt yields, pushing Japanese government bonds to trade at a negative yield for the first time ever today.

    • Despite shrinking support for his economic policies, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe still has a wide lead heading into Japan's national election on Dec. 14, the Asahi Shimbun and Nikkei dailies reported.
    • More than a third of people surveyed answered that they would vote for Abe’s governing Liberal Democratic Party, three times the level of support compared to the main opposition group, the Democratic Party of Japan.
    • Abe dissolved the lower house of parliament last week to seek public approval for a delay in a second sales tax.

    • Japan's Shinzo Abe will hold a press conference at 5:10 ET, the government announced, fueling further speculation of a snap election and a delay to a second sales tax hike currently scheduled for next October.
    • Nikkei newspaper reported earlier today that Abe was expected to seek an 18-month delay to the tax hike.
    • The news was enough to pump stocks in Tokyo, which rebounded from their biggest one-day rout this year. The Nikkei benchmark closed up 2.2% at 17,344.06, after falling 3%, or 517.03 points, in the previous session.

    • "The argument that tax hikes cause recessions is becoming more difficult to refute," says Wells Fargo, dissecting Japan's slip back into an official recession in Q3 (following a big boost in the sales tax on April 1). "In our view, next year's tax hike is at least postponed and Abenomics in general is losing traction."
    • The bank does note it was an inventory swing which was responsible for much of the decline in Q3 GDP as there were gains in consumer spending and net exports, but business fixed investment also fell during the quarter.
    • Previously (along with the IMF and OECD) a supporter of another sales tax hike in October 2015, the team at Wells says it could be politically untenable at this point.

    • The Nikkei Stock Average posted its biggest one-day drop since August after Q3 GDP data showed that Japan had slipped into recession.
    • Following a severe contraction in Q2, GDP fell at an annualized 1.6% pace in the July-September quarter, setting the stage for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to delay an unpopular sales tax hike and call a snap election.
    • The Nikkei, which previously surged to seven-year highs following the BOJ’s stimulus measures, closed down 3% at 16,973.80 on the news.

    • Real GDP shrank 1.6% on an annualized basis in Q3, confounding forecasts for a 2.25% expansion - in fact, none of the economists surveyed had expected a negative print. It's the 2nd consecutive quarter of contraction - GDP fell 7.3% in Q2 following a 300 basis points boost in the sales tax which took effect on April 1.
    • The Nikkei has knee-jerked lower by 1.4% in response to the slow number, but there could be a positive spin to the news - Prime Minister Abe has said the Q3 GDP print would play a large role in whether he decides to postpone the next boost in the sales tax currently scheduled for October 2015.
    • The yen is marginally stronger vs. the dollar, which currently is buying ¥116.22.

    • Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appears to have decided to call an early election, reported the Jiji news agency quoting Tadamori Oshima, a former deputy chief of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.
    • The news was enough to send Japanese stocks to fresh seven-year highs again today, with the Nikkei closing up 1.1% at 17,392.79.
    • Japanese media have been speculating that Abe could call for a snap election as early as next week, with the actual voting to be held next month.
