The Caixin China General Services PMI edged down to 53.6 in January 2019 from 53.9 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the weakest growth in the service sector since October 2018, mainly affected by weakening domestic demand and despite signs of progress in the Sino-US trade negotiations. New orders rose the most in seven months, new export orders expanded at the steepest pace in over a year, and employment growth accelerated to a 3-month high. Meanwhile, backlogs of work declined slightly. On the price front, input price inflation slowed to its lowest since May last year, while factory gate prices fell for the third month in a row and at a quicker rate. Finally, sentiment weakened. "The effects of China’s policies to support domestic demand and the development of the trade war between the country and the US will remain key to the prospects of the Chinese economy," said Zhengsheng Zhong, director of macroeconomic analysis at CEBM Group. Services PMI in China is reported by Markit Economics.
