Key Quotes

"At 11:30am Syd/8:30am Sing/HK we see Australia’s Sep housing finance data. Westpac looks for -1% m/m in total approvals, versus -0.4% median. The movement in investor loans will be noted. This report tends not to really impact AUD (compared to e.g. building approvals) as banks have industry data for guidance."

"China releases Oct CPI and PPI at 12:30pm Syd/9:30am local. Consensus is 1.6% y/y on CPI, -2% y/y on PPI (low oil prices etc). Inflation is not a barrier to monetary easing should authorities decide it warranted so there should be no market impact. China’s lending data is due any time this week. The US data calendar is quiet as usual after the employment report but we will hear from Boston Fed dove Rosengren."
