The election was the second blow since last week for the euro, still smarting after the European Central Bank unveiled a huge bond-buying stimulus program. Both U.S. stock futures and Japan#039;s Nikkei fell 0.6 percent while MSCI#039;s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan shed 0.1 percent on heightened concerns the Greek election results could lead to renewed instability in Europe. Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras is set to become prime minister of the first euro zone government openly opposed to bailout conditions imposed by the European Union and International Monetary Fund during the economic crisis./pbr clear="all"/

The 12.9 percent year-on-year rise in exports marked a fourth straight month of growth, supported by shipments of cars to the United States and of electronics parts to China, data by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) showed on Monday. A recovery in exports, which has been a soft spot in the world#039;s third-largest economy, could be a source of comfort for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is battling to re-kindle growth after an April sales tax hike drove Japan into a recession./pbr clear="all"/

These shallower price losses were part of the reason why the gasoline price drop was less steep this week and contributed to the gains in wholesale prices./pbr clear="all"/
