At the same time, the head of the Central Bank Draghi signaled in September a possible further easing. In September, the ECB economists will present the new forecasts for growth and inflation, allowing a more clear asses of the probability of slowing down economic recovery. As for the Brexit impact, he said that everything will depend on how long the negotiations will take place between the UK and the EU on the new conditions of interaction, as well as the results of these negotiations. "It is too early to judge the impact" - Draghi said, adding that Brexit was a problem for the European economy, given the geopolitical uncertainties. He also said to use all available instruments in the framework of the mandate in the case of reducing the probability of achieving the inflation target over the coming years, if necesary.

The Japanese yen traded in a narrow range around yesterday's lows. Bank of Japan Kuroda, denied the possibility of "helicopter money", thereby weakening the expectations of radical stimulus measures. "There is neither necessary nor possible", - said Kuroda.

Recent statements by Kuroda largely repeated his earlier statement that the government and the central bank should make decisions on fiscal and monetary policy, rather than a coordinated action within the framework of "distributing money" program. Kuroda said that if necessary, he will strengthen the measures namely - a wide-ranging program of asset purchases and negative rates. "We have a very strong policy framework", and I do not think there are significant limitations for further easing, Kuroda said.

Business activity in July was 49.0, higher than the previous value of 48.1 and analysts' expectations of 48.3. Despite the small increase the PMI index still remains below 50. The new export orders fell at the fastest pace in more than three and a half years and amounted to 44.0. The appreciation of the yen was leading to a decrease in global competitiveness.
