Shanghai Comp and Hang Seng are leading the regional indices higher, as investors continued to process the latest set of economic data released overnight.

In the property space, local press reported many banks in Shenzhen have raised mortgage rates for first homes - renewed signs of inflation in the housing market.- Among USD majors, USD/JPY pared some of its initial gains, retreating below ¥123.60 on comments from BOJ's Harada who said the central bank could hold off on expanding stimulus even if inflation does not hit 2% target as long as price trends are improving. Typically more conservative Fin Min Aso also spoke out of character, noting economic environment needs to be prepared before the next sales tax increase in April 2017. Aso declined to comment on FX levels unlike BOJ Gov Kuroda overnight, who made a ripple in FX markets earlier this week by suggesting the yen may not weaken further.After surprise policy easing by the RBNZ overnight, BNZ lowered its Q1 GDP target to 0.6% from 0.8% following a dip in Business PMI to a 4-month low.
