Looking Ahead in Asia

The spotlight returns to China this week after a week-long holiday that has kept markets closed while the rest of the world reacted to a shutdown in the U.S. government.

Chinese markets re-open on Tuesday following the Golden Week holiday, with attention turning to September trade data due on Saturday for an update on how the world’s second biggest economy is doing.
