FOREX: A Japanese national holiday has seemingly resulted in a lack of news flow
and data releases in early Asia-Pacific trade, with the G10 FX space lacking any
real impetus. 
- Sterling ticked up in early Asia-Pac dealing after RTRS reported that on
Monday UK PM May is to say that parliament blocking Brexit is more probable than
a "no deal" withdrawal. However, initial impact largely faded away thereafter,
as markets prepare for the "meaningful vote" due to take place on Tuesday. 
- The yen has garnered some modest strength with U.S. equities poised to open on
the back foot. 
- USD/CNH has dropped ~50 pips thus far, but is nowhere near Friday's worst
levels. As a reminder Friday saw the release of a MNI source story re: PBOC
being wary of yuan appreciation (see MNI Main Wire at 12:48 GMT 01/11) 
- Today's data releases include Chinese trade balance & EZ industrial output.
