HSBC Flash China PMI At 7-Month Low

Here’s the first piece of today’s data dump from Markit that hammered the markets and Mr. Risk.

Commenting on the Flash China Manufacturing PMI survey, Hongbin Qu, Chief Economist, China & Co-Head of Asian Economic Research at HSBC said:
“China’s manufacturing sector continued to slow in June, though the pace of slowdown seems to be slowing. With external headwinds remaining strong, exports are likely to decelerate in the coming months. The sharp fall of prices and moderation of new orders suggest weak domestic demand, posing destocking pressures for Chinese manufacturers. All will likely weigh on the jobs market. As such, we expect more decisive policy stimulus to reverse the growth slowdown.”
