Japan consumer prices tack on for the ninth straight month

In September, Japan's core consumer prices demonstrated a ninth straight month of annual revenues. However, they didn’t manage to accelerate from last month, thus underscoring the major bank's ambitious task because it actually struggles to meet an ever-elusive 2% inflation objective.

Apparently, most of September's scant inflation was powered by ongoing leaps in energy costs that were partly compensated by sagging cellphone bills, which is another sign that companies are still reluctant to lift prices as they don’t want to stall a fragile revival in private consumption.

Still, the BOJ is braced for maintaining its current inflation forecasts at a policy gathering next week. The country’s major financial institution blames ongoing inflation on such factors as corporate efforts to spur productivity.

Meanwhile, in September, the nationwide core consumer price index, including oil products and excluding volatile fresh food prices, rallied 0.7% from 2016, matching August. However, it turned to be lower than a 0.8% median market estimate.
