Comments:
Asian stock markets were mixed on the final day of the month, the Nikkei posted a small gain whereas the Hang Seng Index closed in the red. Chinese investors usually tend to act a bit on the defensive side ahead of the Chinese New Year period starting next week. The Chinese Stock market will then be closed for 7 days. 
We see some profit taking in the YEN related pairs – with USD/JPY coming down from 91.41. EUR/JPY Investors also took some chips off the table with the pair re-testing the 123 level after trading as high as 123.87 yesterday. The New Zealand Dollar was stronger in overnight trading - especially against a weaker Aussie - after the Central Bank of New Zealand left the benchmark rate unchanged at 2.5 %.

In a statement last night after their two day meeting the US-Federal Reserve said that “economic growth faces downside risks”, suggesting that the FED will continue to pump billions of Dollars into the system for a yet undefined period.
In the afternoon we get economic data out of the US, with the weekly jobless claims in focus ahead of tomorrow`s big non-farm payroll numbers. Furthermore we expect personal income and personal spending data as well as the Chicago PMI.
