After Sunday's strong Export figures, the Chinese CPI yesterday showed a slowing to 3% in November from 3.2%, easing the markets fears that the PBoC would start tightening policy soon. Europe markets also gained despite some softer data Industrial Production data in Germany. The EUR briefly fell following the data but managed to claw back its losses to end the session higher at around 1.3740.
