Japan 225 cash (Nikkei) - Not only is it a big day of earnings in Japan, but the BoJ meet in the afternoon, with BoJ governor Kuroda set to speak at 16:30. The BoJ are not expected to ease further, however the market is expecting changes to its economic projections. Mr Kuroda has been fairly hawkish of late, suggesting the Japanese economy is responding well to its loose stance and is on track to meet the inflation goals that have been set. With this in mind, any dovish narrative that hints a monetary policy easing in the future should see the JPY weaken across the board.
