"Additionally, investors may be already pricing in the possibility of further stimulus in Japan next week, although a move from the BOJ is still unclear. During the upcoming Asian session, Japan will release its Trade Balance figures for September, expected to have posted a surplus of ¥84.4B against a previous deficit of ¥569.7B. Imports however, are expected to have decreased by 11.7% which may spur some fears over a steady global economic slowdown, and result in a stronger Yen on safe-haven demand.
