The most active trade remains in the energy space, as Jan WTI crude oil contract hit fresh 4-year lows below $73/brl ahead of the upcoming OPEC meeting.- Shanghai Composite is among the leading indices, supported by strength in financials and brokers in the wake of approval to provide online brokerage services. PBoC also continued to supply cosmetic doses of liquidity following Friday's rate cut, with this week's net injection as the biggest in 3 months. Speaking at Caijing conference, PBoC Dep Gov Hu remarked the central bank's FX intervention has been greatly reduced and also reiterating intention to build a deposit insurance system in China. Furthermore, just as more press reports speculated a reduction in China's official GDP rate, Hu said 7.4% GDP growth for China is reasonable. In economic data, China industrial profits slumped, further justifying a more proactive PBoC policy stance.- AUD/USD is among the most active dollar majors, spiking some 70pips toward $0.86 after a much stronger than expected Australia capital expenditure figures.

An economist with ANZ said the figures suggest firms are planning investment growth of just over 5% in current year, implying recovery in the non-mining sectors of the economy. NZD/USD was also up about 40pips above $0.79, helped in part by a sharp decline in net sales of the currency by the central bank in Oct vs Sept levels.
