FXstreet.com (London) - Asian stockmarkets all show soft losses, drifting through thin trading as we step deeper into the holidays.

Japan's Nikkei was down 1.5%, Australia's Index lost 0.9% and the Kospi Composite drifted 0.3%.

This points to a neutral, if not bearish London opening in the coming hours.

For the day ahead Euro focus will be around further developments in Dubia and Greece, as well as Alastair Darlings

tone when he speaks, later today.

Oil may continue its drift down on thin December flow, perhaps aptly, as Climate Change Committee discussed

policy ideas in Copenhagen yesterday.

Euro will likely take the spotlight after it hit five week lows against the dollar yesterday, as Dubia and Greece signal that perhaps not all the fallout of the credit crisis has yet been revealed.
