The sentiment turned more cautious following the release of data out of Asia's top two economies. The BoJ Tankan Survey came in just shy of expectations, but enough for investors to tread cautiously. Concern over the momentum behind China recovery resurfaced following the release of the manufacturing PMI. Investors will be focused on the BoJ policy meeting with high expectations for new monetary easing measures under the new leadership of governor Kuroda. - The Chinese govt continued to place restrictions on property prices. The large cities tightened rules on home purchases following a request to increase efforts to cool the property market. Beijing will ban single-person households from purchasing more than one home, while increasing down payment requirements for all 2nd property buyers. The city of Shanghai will follow in suit with a 20% taxation policy, and an increase in both down payments and mortgage rates of second home buyers. ***Currencies/Fixed Income/Commodities*** - (CN) PBoC sets yuan mid point at 6.2674 v 6.2108 prior close (highest CNY setting since May 2012) - (CN) China 2013 rare earth mining targets set at 46.9K tons, about half of 2012 amount - DigiTimes - (KR) South Korea sells 30-yr bonds; avg yield 3.17% - JPY strengthened across the board, as fears of a BOJ disappointment overshadowed expectations of a meaningful policy shift.
