Domestic and International Events

  • US employment increased solidly in June, but the unemployment rate rose to a 2.5-year high of 4.1%, indicating a slackening labour market. The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report revealed that the economy created 111,000 fewer jobs in April and May than previously estimated. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 206,000 jobs in June, boosted by government hiring. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast an increase of 190,000 jobs for the month.
  • Japan’s inflation-adjusted real wages fell in May for a record 26th consecutive month, according to Reuters. Government data showed that real wages dropped by 1.4% in May, a steeper decline than April’s 1.2%. This decrease was driven by a weakening yen and higher commodity prices, which increased the cost of imports. Despite this, Japan’s base pay rose by 2.5% in May compared to the previous year, marking the fastest growth since 1993 and surpassing the 1.9% increase in the headline figure.
  • The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) announced that it will conduct temporary bond repurchase or reverse repurchase operations based on the market situation during working days. The central bank stated that these measures aim to maintain reasonable and sufficient liquidity in the banking system.
  • Crude oil prices traded mixed ahead of reports from OPEC and the IEA expected this week. Brent crude futures dipped by 0.14% to $86.42 a barrel after four consecutive weeks of gains, while West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures decreased by 0.30% to $82.91 a barrel.
