“If Q2 GDP is to be revised up, and with it the chances of the contentious sales tax increase to 8% next April and 10% in October 2015, then we will need to see a strong CAPEX outcome.”

However, the sales tax increase is set to become very much the key policy risk for Abe with the ‘knowledgeable people’ panel set to meet next week. Failure to agree to the tax hike should add to upside risk for the JPY in our view. We remain buyers of dips despite current USD strength.”
