Looking Ahead in Asia

There’s no let-up for Asia this week with a plethora of potentially market-moving economic data and events on the calendar.  For starters, China releases a slew of economic numbers Monday including closely-anticipated fourth quarter gross domestic product (GDP) data.

South Korea releases an advanced estimate of its fourth quarter GDP data on Thursday, while central banks in Japan, Thailand and the Philippines meet. There’s also earning results from big corporates including the Singapore Exchange, India’s Larsen & Toubro and South Korea’s Samsung Electronics.

China releases December retail sales, fixed asset investment, industrial output and GDP data later on Monday.
