Macroeconomic statistics from China still disappoints investors. In the first half of May the weak reports on manufacturing, crediting and direct investments was published. We cannot ignore the Markit Manufacturing PMI index, which has been below 50% for 14 months in a row. Now this index indicates a decline of business activity in Chinese industry. Forex market takes it as a signal of anticipated decline of Chinese currency, because a gradual devaluation will strengthen competitive ability of Chinese products in foreign markets. Exporters should be encouraged and the best scenario is devaluation of the national currency. Stock market treat this signal as continuation of the downtrend. During the first three weeks of May, Shanghai Composite Index had lost 3.2%, and according to analysts, the negative trend will enhance during the coming weeks.
