Weaker Chinese economy will impact the global economy and markets
Financial experts at Danske Bank suggest that there’s an ascending risk for global markets because a dipping Chinese economy will have a devastating impact on the global economy as well as markets.
No one denies that China happens to be the primary contributor to the world economy, generating one-third of global surge. The Asian country acted as a main driver behind the global revival in 2016. Commodity exporting emerging markets derived benefits from both higher volumes as well as prices, while developed markets witnessed a surge in exports to China and also other emerging markets. With the Chinese economy decreasing this year, the lift to the world economy rebounds and it’s a huge reason why financial analysts look for a high in the PMI cycle in H1.
The steep ascend in commodity prices observed in 2016 was pulled mostly by higher Chinese activity. Well, with Chinese companies consuming approximately 50% of global metals, this Asian country appears to be a number one driver of commodity prices. Moreover, for the last few months, both metal and crude prices have gone down, which could be explained by the softer Chinese economy.
