Asian markets fall as investors position themselves for weak U.S. payroll figures today and for Chinese economic data over the weekend. Japanese shares (NKY) enjoy another roller coaster day but end a mere -0.2%, while the dollar-yen is -0.4% as the Japanese currency continues to strengthen. In China, stocks (FXI, CAF) drop for a seventh day in a row amid fears about economic growth and tightening liquidity, while Hong Kong's (EWH) fall of -1.3% puts it in and around correction territory. India +0.5%.
