Nonetheless, market players remained cautious on the ECB’s rate hike outlook, taking cue from the hawkish tone by Christine Lagarde, the central bank’s President.

We saw that the Composite PMI in Japan improved to 54.3 in May 2023 compared to 52.9 in April, marking the fastest growth in private sector since October 2013. The improvement was driven mainly by both services and manufacturing PMI reading as the latter saw growth for the first time in 11 months.

On Friday, inflation in South Korea continue to ease and reaching the lowest level since October 2021 as data showed the growth in consumer price fell to 3.3% y/y in May 2023 (April 2023: 3.7% y/y). Despite that, the Bank of Korea noted that the future inflation path remained uncertain due to the volatile global oil price, external and internal economic growth, and the increase of public utility prices.


The Aussie gained 0.11% to 0.662. The focus today will be on RBA’s policy decision where the market is split whether the central bank will pause or continue raising its interest rate, especially after the monthly CPI indicator is showing stillred hot inflation threat for the economy.
