Note the negative CPI for 'core' inflation (thats the National CPI excluding Fresh Food), but the 'core-core' inflation (the National CPI excluding Food, Energy), which is the way most other developed economies measure 'core' inflation, is looking closer to the BOJ target at, coming in at +0.7% for October (national rate) and +0.6% for November in Tokyo.

The yen ... weaker by a tad. USD/JPY up a handful of points. Check out the household spending data ( on this post) ... a big big miss, again, This data has been disappointing.

more to come

Don't forget, the Bank of Japan will publish its own CPI data at 0500GMT
