Looking Ahead in Asia

The week ahead is likely to see focus return to the outlook for China’s economy, with a slew of economic data lined up for release.  It’s also a central bank heavy week for regional markets, with monetary policy meetings scheduled to take place in New Zealand, South Korea and Indonesia on Thursday.

And talk about whether the U.S. Federal Reserve will begin to taper its hefty monetary stimulus at next week’s policy meeting following Friday’s strong jobs report is also likely to be a dominant theme.

China releases its November consumer price index (CPI) on Monday, followed by the release of industrial production, fixed asset investment and retail sales numbers for November on Tuesday.
