Pound shrugs off Johnson's latest Brexit setback
Sterling opened to modest losses Monday following British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's latest failure to break the Brexit deadlock, with forex markets shrugging off a weekend of drama in the British parliament.

Quick work: 49ers-Redskins is NFL's shortest game in nearly a decade
For all the talk about endless replays, shaky officiating and countless commercial breaks making the NFL an unwatchable product, we just had one of the quickest games in recent league history in Week 7.

(Bloomberg) -- Japan’s exports dropped for a tenth month in September as the global slowdown continues to batter manufacturers with overseas markets.Shipments abroad fell 5.2% to extend the longest declining streak since 2016, according to a report released by the Ministry of Finance on Monday. The median estimate of economists was for a 3.7% decrease.Key InsightsThe data come ahead of a Bank of Japan review of the economy and inflation later this month that some analysts have seen as a signal of impending action from the central bank. A critical question for the BOJ is whether weakness in exports will spread to domestic demand and pull down inflation.Any delay to a recovery in the global economy would come at a vulnerable time for Japan’s economy with a sales tax hike implemented this month likely to weaken consumer spending and shrink economic growth in the last quarter.While a truce in the U.S.-China trade war could lower the risks faced by the global economy, it remains to be seen how both processes will evolve and what the effect will be on trade at home and abroad.Economists are increasingly taking the view that the global IT cycle may have hit the bottom. That could provide a lift for Japan’s exports going forward.What Bloomberg’s Economists Say“Looking ahead, a strong yen and slowing external demand -- as highlighted by the IMF’s cut in its global growth forecasts -- will continue to weigh on Japan’s exports.”The Asia Economist TeamClick here to read moreGet MoreImports fell 1.5% in September, versus economists’ median estimate of a 2.8% decrease.Exports to China dropped 6.7% while exports to U.S. slipped 7.9%.The trade balance was a 123 billion yen deficit, compared with a 54 billion yen surplus estimated by economists.(Adds more details)\--With assistance from Tomoko Sato.To contact the reporter on this story: Toru Fujioka in Tokyo at tfujioka1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Malcolm Scott at mscott23@bloomberg.net, Paul Jackson, Go OnomitsuFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
