China Flash Manufacturing PMI at 50.4, Thirteen-month High

Markit reported this morning China’s manufacturing sector is expanding, just barely, for the first time in 13 months.  Ironically, all markets believe it x/ the Shanghai Composite, which made a new 3-year low yesterday.

Commenting on the Flash China Manufacturing PMI survey, Hongbin Qu, Chief Economist, China & Co-Head of Asian Economic Research at HSBC said:
“As November’s flash reading of HSBC manufacturing PMI bounced back to the expansionary territory for the first time in 13 months, this confirms that the economic recovery continues to gain momentum towards the year end. However, it is still the early stage of recovery and global economic growth remains fragile. This calls for a continuation of policy easing to strengthen the recovery.”
