Good Morning Traders! This Friday we get Manufacturing PMI data across the Euro-Area, as well as Eurozone CPI.

Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda stated that the Bank of Japan’s price target is not yet in sight, which may dampen anticipation that the bank’s first rate hike since 2007 may occur as early as March. Japan’s 5-year bond yield climbs to this year’s high amid mounting anticipation that the central bank would abandon the world’s last negative interest rate policy as early as this month.

China’s senior leadership has committed to meet economic targets for the year, minimise risks, and maintain social stability, raising concerns about a recovery delayed by a prolonged property crisis and deflation.
