US stock markets are closed due to Memorial Day holiday, as well as the UK; causing Asian and Indonesian markets to move without guidance from regional markets today. Few clues from the US debt ceiling crisis that has touched USD 31.4trillion; it still seems to have a long way to go in order to get Parliamentary approval (especially from the Republicans). However, market participants seem quite optimistic that an agreement which relieves many parties will be reached before the US default due date on June 1. Meanwhile, there is still a debate whether the Federal Reserve will still raise interest rates for the 11th time at next month’s FOMC Meeting; or start to step on the brakes of this upward trend.

This morning Japan has reported its Unemployment Rate (Apr.) which came out at 2.6% lower than forecast and previous period. Later today we will await Consumer Confidence (May) from the US & Euro Zone; a leading indicator to predict public spending which plays an important role in overall economic activity.
