The Nikkei is flat ahead of the BOJ and both HK and Seoul are +0.4%.

Gold is trading at $1657/oz and Oil at $104/bbl.

EUR/JPY has been the most active pair today so far in the FX market and it’s back below 106.90 after topping out earlier at 107.25. It feels like a scalpers market so if you’re good enough to pick short-term turns then well done, but I would not be chasing trends in these market conditions.
