The latest release of PPI and CPI gave the China government more leeway to boost the economy, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday. Aliuser reckons this as a good sign.

The producer price index (PPI) grew 6.6 percent in October – the slowest pace in eight months, compared with 4.6 percent in September.

China’s consumer price index (CPI), the main barometer of inflation, rose 4 percent in October from a year earlier, compared with 8.3 percent in the nine months through September.

Morgan Stanely economist Wang Qing and JP Morgan chief economist Frank Gong both expected China exports in October could be slipped by as much as 20 percent despite a resilient export growth in September.

The warning came before China releases its macro date for October in the upcoming week. They said industrial output has slowed faster than exports, indicating that China economy was shrinking faster than expected.

Good news is inflation rate in China is easing continuously, according to Mr Wang. He noted that producer inflation (PPI)  and consumer inflation (CPI) were expected to stay around 7.9 percent and 4.3 percent, respectively. It provide a favorable factor for the China government to adjust its monetary policy.
