Japan Leading Index Due On Monday

Japan is on Monday scheduled to release final numbers for February's leading and coincident indexes, highlighting a light day for Asia-Pacific economic activity.

Little change is expected from the preliminary readings that showed the leading index with a score of 96.6 and the coincident with a reading of 93.7. Japan also will see March figures for supermarket sales; they were up 0.3 percent on year in February.

Australia will provide producer price data for the first quarter of 2012. Forecasts suggest an increase of 0.5 percent on quarter and 2.2 percent on year after collecting 0.3 percent on quarter and 2.9 percent on year in the previous three months.
