Flood of Economic Data Overseas

Stocks in Asia were mixed Monday, as investors in the region awaited China’s industrial output, retail sales, and house sale prices data. China’s Shanghai Composite added 0.8% after the country’s consumer price index (CPI) grew 0.1% in August – a positive inflation rate for the first time since May -- while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng settled 0.6% lower. South Korea’s Kospi added 0.4%, while Japan’s Nikkei shed 0.4% after the Yomiuri newspaper said the Bank of Japan (BoJ) is entering “a phase of reducing monetary easing.”

A deluge of economic data is due out of Europe as well, and markets across the pond are higher ahead of the releases. At last glance, Germany’s DAX and France’s CAC 40 are both 0.3% higher, but London’s FTSE 100 sits flat.
