China PMIs (October): Manufacturing 49.8 (50.0 expected) Services 53.1 (53.4 prior)

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

Official PMI from China over the weekend.

October Manufacturing PMI comes in at 49.8

  • Expected is 50.0 and Prior was 49.8
  • The third month in a row for contraction in this survey

October Non-Manufacturing PMI at 53.1

  • Prior was 53.4

The combination of a miss on expectations for the Manufacturing PMI and a fall from last month in the 'services' PMI is not a positive for the China outlook. These are overly (should read) not overly bad data points for the PMI but they are indicative of further expectations for more stimulus efforts from China.


The Caixin Markit Manufacturing PMI is due on Monday 2 November at 0145GMT
