Three central bank meetings will take the spotlight in Asia-Pacific during this holiday-shortened week.
Several Southeast Asian markets including Singapore, Malaysia, India and Indonesia are closed on Monday and South Korea will be closed on Thursday. Meanwhile, Shanghai markets will resume trade on Wednesday following a week-long holiday.
On Tuesday, the Bank of Japan (BOJ), Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and Bank Indonesia all announce policy decisions.
Consensus is for current policy to remain unchanged, but the central bank could debate its 2 percent inflation target in light of recent data. Core consumer prices rose 1.1 percent in August from a year ago, excluding the impact of April's sales tax hike - slower than July's 1.3 percent increase.
"There is speculation in the press that the BOJ may emphasize a more flexible timeframe for achieving its 2 percent inflation goal... this may mean less likelihood of further policy easing any time soon," said Greg Gibbs, senior currency strategist at RBS in a note.
