Chinese data releases will meanwhile shape financial market expectations of fiscal stimulus after China lowered its GDP target this year. The Bank of Japan's policy meeting will be in focus amid calls for additional stimulus after headline inflation came in nearly flat.
Other key Asian data releases include South Korea's unemployment rate, plus inflation and trade data for India and Japan's machinery orders. The UK parliament votes on the Brexit deal.
