China’s manufacturing sector surge speeds down in June

As a matter of fact, in June, the Caixin/Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' index inched down to 51.0 versus May’s reading of 51.1, which is quite in line with experts’ estimates.
It had been staying above the 50-point threshold separating surge from contraction for up to 13 months.
In June, a sub-index for output tacked on to 52.1, which is a four-month maximum, although new order surge speeded down and businesses made up their mind to sell down their existing inventories instead of having them restocked.

Market participants have punished China’s equities as well as the Yuan since the trade clashes grew for the last month. The Chinese Yuan took a battering versus the evergreen buck in June.
