The National Congress comes up starting October 18

Here's a piece from Bloomberg on People's Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan comments this week, suggesting imminent reform announcements are on the agenda.

  1. loosening of foreign investment restrictions
  2. launch of domestic oil futures ... A new oil futures contract in the Shanghai free trade zone might sound trivial, but it could be the first step in removing capital controls on remittance of foreign investors' profits.
