    “This comes close on the heels of the March official manufacturing PMI data, which also surprised to the upside (50.2 vs consensus 49.4). Our economists see a calmer H1 than seemed possible at the beginning of the year and expect the Chinese economy to grow 6.6% yoy in Q1 and 6.3% in Q2 on the back of an improved housing sector and government-led spending.

    The FX reserves data for March is scheduled to be released tomorrow, and our economists expect a first monthly rise in five months (from $3,202bn to $3,250bn), providing further evidence that the PBoC’s efforts to stabilise the CNY and stem capital outflows are reaping benefits.”
