China October official factory PMI goes down more than expected

In October, surge in China's manufacturing sector decreased more than expected amid a weakening property market as well as tighter pollution rules, thus forcing many smelters, steels mills and also factories to reduce output over the winter.

Issued on Tuesday the official Purchasing Managers' Index kept to 51.6 in October versus September’s outcome of 52.4.

It turned to be the lowest result since July's 51.4, although it remained quite above the 50-point mark, separating surge from contraction on a monthly basis.

Market experts polled by Reuters had predicted that the reading would hit 52.0, tumbling marginally from September’s five-year maximum, although still quite above the recent trend.

A revival of China's manufacturing as well as industrial companies, spurred by government spending, unexpected strength in exports and a resilient property market – all of this has helped the Chinese economy to report better-than-anticipated surge of almost 6.9% through the first nine months of 2017.
