  • Australian Retail Sales weaker but the Current Account data was a tad better as the market awaits the RBA's monetary policy statement. The expectations are for them to stay the course and keep the cash rate at +2.5%.
  • Australia's better than expected Net Export figure has prompted economists to raise their GDP forecast (due out tomorrow) to +1.1% on a quarterly basis.
  • China's HSBC Manufacturing PMI rose to a 4 month high, though it was below median forecast, further suggesting that the economy might be stabilizing.
