Korea's KOSPI lost a heavy 1.70%, while India's Nifty fell 0.68%. China's Shanghai index rose however, with investors hoping the weak data would prompt the central bank into more easing; the index last traded 0.42% higher.

Gold futures rose $3.80, or 0.35% to $1,091.80 an ounce. Silver futures rose 6 cents, or 0.46% to $14.48 an ounce.

From the Eurozone, French and Italian industrial production for September is forecast at 0.1%, 0.5% m\m respectively. A higher result could help Euro recover from its lows.

From U.S., import prices for October are forecast to have fallen 0.1% m\m. a positive result would indicate that inflation is ticking up, which would raise the bets on a Fed rate hike, resulting in a stronger dollar.
