Key Quotes

"Liquidity was not the best during the Asian trading session with much of Asia off to celebrate Chinese New Year. Tokyo was open though and we had the inflation data released with the nationwide data indicating continued upward price pressures while the Tokyo data came in a bit on the weaker side.
