Argentina plans to deposit the next interest payment due on its restructured debt with a local bank today.
Japan's economy took another big hit in August, with figures displaying annual household spending plunging 4.7%, falling for a fifth straight month. Trade ministry data also shows industrial output dropping 1.5% in August. The effects of the April 1 sales tax hike to 8% from 5% continue to take a toll on the country's economy, as it shoots for its 2% inflation goal by around mid-2015. The Bank of Japan is in no mood to deploy additional easing anytime soon, although a weakening yen will make that target very difficult.
Protestors continue to block many central roads and highways in Hong Kong, as pro-democracy demonstrations extend into their fifth day.

Microsoft is unveiling its next version of Windows in San Francisco today. New features are expected to be specifically catered to corporate buyers, who shifted away from Windows 8's less work-friendly features. Separately, the Chinese regulator investigating Microsoft (MSFT) in China for alleged antitrust violations has announced that it will conduct an open and fair investigation, after Chief Executive Satya Nadella promised full cooperation in the case yesterday. The tone sharply contrasts with the way Chinese investigators have carried out the case so far, conducting surprise inspections and seizing material.
The iPhone 6 has finally been approved to be sold in China, the world's largest smartphone market and one of Apple's (AAPL) largest for iPhone sales, ten days after its global launch.
