Global Economic Data

China’s trade numbers for July were generally disappointing. While the trade surplus increased more than expected to $80.60 billion (prev. $70.62 billion, est. $70.0 billion), this was attributable to a substantial -12.4% reduction in imports (-5.6% predicted) and a -14.5% loss in exports. China’s oil imports fell to their lowest level since January as the country’s slow economic recovery weighed on energy demand.

According to the British Retail Consortium (BRC), like-for-like retail sales climbed by 1.8% in July, the slowest rate since October and less than half the 12-month average of 3.6%.

 Japan’s current account increased to 2,345.9 billion yen in June from 1,702.7 billion yen the previous month; exports up 7.1% month on month, while imports increased 1.1% month on month.
