On the calendar during the Asian timezone for today

2330GMT - Australia - Construction PMI for August (the third in the series of 3 PMIs from the Australian Industry Group ... the manufacturing and services PMIs have been dreadful, both showing huge drops)

0115GMT - Federal Reserve San Fran President John Williams speaks on the economy, conditions and his outlook. Text, followed by audience Q&A

0130GMT - Australian GDP for Q2. Expected for this was +0.4% q/q until yesterday's data showed exports (as a % of GDP) falling, but government spending rising strongly. Consensus expectations have since been ramped up; Bloomberg survey showing now 0.6% q/q, which is a big jump. I'll be back with more on this.
