Marco Data Impacting Asia 21 - 25 Dec


21 Dec

A shortened trading week for many with Christmas Day on Friday, although a number of  Asian markets remain open many international investors will be on holiday.

News on Sunday that Congress had agreed a stimulus package deal should be positive along with news out last Friday allowing US Banks to resume share buybacks. On the downside news of a new strain of the covid virus in the UK will raise concerns especially as many countries are already seeing a surge in cases, notably Japan and S Korea.

For Asia. Japan’s Policy meeting notes out Wednesday, then Jobs and Tokyo CPI data out Friday will be important. China’s Loan Prime Rate out already was unchanged, on Saturday we get Industrial Profits data.
Europe focus is still the Brexit Deal and also the EU/China deal which seems to have hit a snag in China refusing to commit to International Labour Organisation Standards. US Rising covid cases still concern. Data dumps on Tuesday and Wednesday and on Thursday Initial claims and Durable Goods.
