Speaking at a Hong Kong conference, China Securities Regulatory Commission Chairman Guo Shuqing said China could substantially increase the quota for foreign investors to invest in domestic stocks to support Chinese equity markets, with the scope to increase the RQFII (Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor) by as much as 10x the current levels. Guo also noted CSRS will continue to take steps to make Chinese equity markets "more mature" and to smooth out the volatility of recent years. Shanghai Composite was up well over 2%, approaching 2,300 level - its highest since mid-June. - Tokyo equity trading was closed to holiday, but that did not keep investors from sending JPY to new multi-month lows across the board. Over the weekend, Japanese press indicated PM Abe had reached an agreement with the BOJ to set a formal 2% "inflation target" to be unveiled in a joint statement with the govt at its upcoming Jan 22nd decision. Report indicating the agreement would be non-binding with no hard deadlines set for achieving that result, but also suggested the administration would push for a medium-term in reaching its inflation goal.
