Welcome to the new week, a holiday-shortened one for many FX centres here in Asia.

On holiday today:

  • New Zealand
  • Australia
  • Hong Kong

Markets open today in

  • Singapore
  • Japan

China is in also.

Liquidity and interest will be thin and sporadic. There is a little on the economic calendar, some China data for March (retail sales, IP, investment) and Q1 GDP (all due at 0200GMT, I'll be back with more on these) and Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda is speaking (0615GMT).

It's a holiday here in Australia, but I'll pop in from time-to-time if there are a few headlines etc.

Early prices ... well there are some!:
