The annual equivalent rate M3 grew by 3.2% against 2.6% the previous result and the forecast of 2.9%. The volume of private lending fell by 0.9% y / y vs. -0.7% of the previous month, confirming the prediction.
Add that did not prevent the growth of the euro even weak data on Germany. According to the report, the seasonally adjusted number of unemployed rose this month to 21,000 since April.

The Australian dollar rose against the U.S. dollar, thus restoring all of the losses incurred in early trading. Partly influenced by the dynamics of trading information that the International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for economic growth in China in 2013 to the level of 7.75 percent, compared with the initial estimate of 8 per cent .. In the report of the organization stated that the reason for the decline was forecast unstable situation in the world economy and the decline in demand for Chinese goods exports. But if the slowdown in China's economy is stronger than forecast in the IMF, the IMF experts advise Beijing to stimulate GDP growth tax cuts. Recall that another leading international financial institution - the World Bank - predicts China's growth in 2013 at 8.3 percent. Earlier, JP Morgan Chase Bank has lowered the forecast for economic growth in China in 2013 to 7.8 percent, after the country's GDP growth in the quarter, I did not meet the expectations of experts.
The Japanese currency rose against the U.S. dollar, which helped the comments of the Bank of Japan Kuroda, who noted that the global economy is still reeling from the effects of the global financial crisis that began five years ago. Kuroda also warned that no country is immune from the repetition of the crisis in the future. "Even if we were able to ascertain the stability of the financial system at the current time, it is unlikely to last forever. Financial crisis could break out beyond the horizon of our forecasts," - said Kuroda. In his view, the creation of a new financial system "is not easy" because no economy can not simultaneously maintain the mobility of capital and financial stability, while carrying out the task of financial policy. "I am convinced, serious problems related to the crisis, will give us new ideas and help create a new and better world" - said Kuroda.
Recall that the current Bank of Japan holds sverhstimuliruyuschuyu program, under which buys bonds by more than 7 trillion yen a month. In this case, the regulator seeks to expand the monetary base. It is expected that the figure will rise to 60-70 trillion yen per year.
