Data coming from China today - May 2019 Industrial Production, Retail Sales

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

I have these due for release at 0200GMT but I might be incorrect on this. These are normally published in a timely manner (unlike trade balance data, for example, which can be a bit all over the place). 

Here are the priors and median expectations:

Industrial Production y/y 

  • expected is 5.4%, prior was 5.4%
  • China's industrial output has eased due to the ongoing trade dispute with the US.

Industrial production YTD y/y 

  • expected is 6.1%, prior was 6.2%

Fixed Assets (excluding rural) YTD y/y

  • expected is 6.1%, prior was 6.1%

Retail Sales y/y

  • expected is 8.1%, prior was 7.2%

Retail Sales YTD y/y

  • expected is 8.0%, prior was 8.0%
