China's manufacturing activity at nine-month low: HSBC

Jun 20 2013, 2:30am CDT | by

Beijing, June 20 (IANS) China's manufacturing activities fell to a nine-month low this month, according to a preliminary survey from HSBC.

Beijing, June 20 — China's manufacturing activities fell to a nine-month low this month, according to a preliminary survey from HSBC.

The HSBC Flash Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for June fell to 48.3, the lowest level since October and down from 49.2 in May, according to figures released by HSBC Thursday.

An index reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below 50 means contraction.

Qu Hongbin, chief economist of HSBC China, said China's manufacturing sectors are weighed down by waning external demand, moderating domestic demand and rising destocking pressures, reported Xinhua.

The sub-index for manufacturing output dropped to an eight-month low of 48.8, while those for new orders and new export orders both fell from the previous month, the data show.

Qu said he expects China to see slightly weaker growth in the second quarter, as ongoing reforms may have a limited impact in the short term.

HSBC Wednesday cut its forecast for China's GDP growth this year to 7.4 percent, down from its previous forecast of 8.2 percent.

China's GDP growth slowed to 7.7 percent in the first quarter from 7.9 percent recorded during the last quarter of 2012, data from the National Bureau of Statistics show.

The government has set its growth target for this year at 7.5 percent in a bid to seek quality and efficient economic growth.

Will Jackson Hole Be A Currency Event?

Aug 22 2014 5:14am CDT | Source: Forex News

There’s chatter in the market that the two-day central bank symposium getting underway in Jackson Hole, Wyo., today could be a currency event, another type of Plaza Accord. Up until now, the market had been solely on the lookout for any hawkish comments from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s presentation at the forum tomorrow to gauge timing of a change to the U.S.’s low interest rate policy. Maybe the Fed’s agenda is about to expand? The historic 1985 ...

Dollar May Lose Momentum Ahead Of Yellen Tomorrow

Aug 21 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: SeekingAlpha

By Marc Chandler:The US dollar remains firm, but the upside momentum may slow ahead of Yellen's speech at Jackson Hole tomorrow. The seemingly hawkish take away from the FOMC meeting may be corrected by the Fed's chair when she discusses the metrics of the labor market that lead her (and others) to conclude that there is still "significant slack". Market participants have had to digest a great deal of data today already. There are four highlig ...

US consumer borrowing up $18.3B in June; slower pace may signal restrained consumer spending

Aug 7 2014 2:22pm CDT | Source: Canadian Business Online

WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers expanded their borrowing at a slower rate in June compared to the prior month. Overall credit rose by $18.3 billion in June to a total of $3.17 trillion, the Federal Reserve said Thursday. The rise was down from a gain of $21.5 billion in May. The smaller increase suggests that consumers remain sheepish about spending, which could limit how fast the economy can grow. Ris ...
