    “This compares to a modest rise in the non-official Caixin reading, which was up 0.3pts to 48.6 (vs. 48.3 expected), albeit also in negative territory. Meanwhile and highlighting the divergence between sectors, China’s non-manufacturing PMI climbed 0.5pts to 53.6 – the highest level since July. Chinese bourses were initially weaker post the data but have rebounded for modest gains post the midday break.”
