The Caixin China General Composite PMI dropped to 50.5 in October 2018 from 52.1 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the weakest pace of expansion in the private sector since June 2016, as the services sector grew at the softest pace in 13 months (PMI at 50.8 from 53.1 in September) and manufacturing output was almost unchanged (PMI at 50.1 from 50 in September). New order growth was the weakest in 32 months and staffing levels were broadly unchanged, while outstanding work rose slightly. On the price front, input prices continued to increase at a solid pace and output charges rose only modestly. Although Chinese companies remained upbeat towards the 12-month business outlook in October, the level of positive sentiment fell across both manufacturers and service providers amid concerns over subdued demand conditions and the impact of the ongoing China-US trade dispute. Composite Pmi in China is reported by Markit Economics.

Composite Pmi in China is expected to be 52.30 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.
