Singapore and Australia will release inflation figures for September on Monday and Wednesday respectively, while Japan will release Tokyo’s inflation numbers on Friday. Tokyo’s inflation is considered a leading indicator of nationwide figures.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 slipped 0.44%, while the Topix was down 0.12%. South Korea’s Kospi was trading just below the flatline, while the Kosdaq bucked the trend and gained 0.51%.

Hong Kong’s markets are closed for a holiday Monday.

On Friday in the U.S., all three major indexes retreated as a surge in the 10-year Treasury yield prompted broader concerns about the state of the economy.

The S&P 500 shed 1.26%, notching its first losing week in three, while the Nasdaq Composite dropped 1.53% The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0.86%.
