    • U.S. stock index futures (DIA, SPY, QQQ) are lower by just over 1%.

    • China's inflation rose to 2% on year in August from 1.6% in July and topped consensus of 1.8%.
    • On month, China's CPI accelerated to +0.5% from +0.3% and vs +0.4%.
    • The deflation in factory-gate prices (PPI) deepened, tumbling 5.9% on year vs -5.4% previously and vs forecasts of -5.5%. PPI has now dropped for 42 months in a row, with the latest fall the worst since 2009.
    • "The change in PPI is very worrying. It could affect corporate profitability, which in turn could affect consumption and the economy," says economist Li Huiyong.
    • Inflation was boosted by an increase in food costs, with pork prices surging 19.6% on year amid a supply crunch.
    • However, with commodity prices low and overcapacity prevalent, underlying inflation is otherwise subdued.
    • The inflation numbers comes after poor trade figures on Tuesday and ahead of retail sales, industrial production and fixed asset investment data on Sunday.
    • The Shanghai Composite is -1.75% after rising strongly in previous sessions, while the Hang Seng is -2.7%.

    • Chinese imports fell for the tenth month in a row, tumbling a greater than expected 13.8% in August vs consensus of -8.2% and a fall of 8.1% in July.
    • Exports dropped 5.5% vs -8.3% previously and predictions of -6%.
    • China's trade surplus rose to $60.2B from $43B and easily topped forecasts of $48.2B.
    • The fall in imports reflects lower global commodity prices and sluggish internal demand, while the surprise yuan devaluation last month has yet to have a major impact on exports.
    • While for many observers the dollar trade figures will do little to allay worries about China's stumbling economy, research firm Capital Economics isn't so pessimistic.
    • "Trade has actually been quite healthy recently in volume terms," Capital Economics points out.
    • Indeed, markets don't seem so unhappy either, with the Shanghai Composite climbing 1.75% and the Hang Seng +1.7%.

    • The Hang Seng (NYSEARCA:EWH) is down 1.2%. The Nikkei - which fell 3.8% on Tuesday - is putting in a modest early bounce, up 0.7%. Sydney (NYSEARCA:EWA) is off by 1%.

    • Chinese exports grew for the first time in four months in June, rising 2.8% on year after dropping 2.8% in May and easily beating expectations for a decline of 0.2%.
    • Imports slumped 6.1%, although that represented an improvement from a plunge of 18.1% previously and wasn't as bad as forecasts of -15%.
    • Still, the weak imports indicate that domestic demand remains tepid and adds to the feeling that the central bank could further loosen monetary policy.
    • China's trade surplus narrowed to $46.54B from $59.49B vs consensus of $55.7B.
    • "A return to growth for exports after three months of declines is certainly a positive," says Bloomberg economist Tom Orlik. "However, low single-digit export growth year-to-date against a background of the strengthening global economy is not particularly impressive," Orlik cautions. "With real estate construction also weak, China's main external and domestic engines of demand are both misfiring."
    • The trade figures come ahead of Wednesday's release of GDP data, which is expected to show that growth slowed to 6.8% in Q2 from 7% in Q1.

    • Flattish to lower for most of the session overnight, the Hang Seng flew higher late on chatter a new trading link between Shenzhen and Hong Kong could open as early as September.
    • The Hang Seng closed higher by 2%, while Shanghai fell 1.6%. Hong Kong Exchange & Clearing (OTCPK:HKXCYgained 5%.
    • As for which stocks might be included in the Connect, the Hang Seng Composite Small Cap Index makes sense, given the Large Cap and Medium Cap indexes are already in the Shanghai-Hong Kong Connect.

    • Responding to weak Q1 economic data, the PBOC cut the required reserve ratio by 100 basis points to 18.5% over the weekend. It's the second RRR cut since November, notes BBVA, which expects a "tremendous" liquidity injection of ¥1.35T into the financial sector.
    • The team also takes note of the 100 basis point cut vs. the PBOC's typically moving in 50 basis point increments. Expect more easing, says BBVA - mainly in interest rates which could see 75 basis points in cuts in coming months.
    • Shanghai fell 1.6% overnight, with the Hang Seng lower by 2%.

    • Hoping to boost the supply of stocks trading in the market, China's securities regulator will allow institutional investors to lend shares for short selling and will also expand the number of stocks that can be sold short.
    • The announcement comes alongside the introduction of two stock index futures which will also allow investors to place bets/hedge for lower stock prices.
    • The news hit after markets closed, with Shanghai gaining another 2.2% overnight, but FXI -3.5% premarket. ASHR -4.1%

    • Asian shares trade mixed, with Hong Kong stocks again surging as investors look to exploit the cheap prices of Chinese firms listed in the city compared with mainland stocks following an easing of the limits on investment flows between the markets.
    • The Hang Seng jumped as much as 6.4% before closing +2.8%, although Chinese trading wasn't as exuberant and the Shanghai Composite fell 0.9%.
    • In Japan, the Nikkei added to yesterday's gains and rose 0.8% to another 15-year high of 19,938 as it closed in on 20,000, which the index hasn't hit since April 2000.
    • "The mood is helped by the fact that foreign investors are coming back to the Japanese market after they turned sellers early this year," says technical analyst Hiker Sator.
    • Elsewhere, India +0.3%, Australia -0.5%, Singapore -0.2%.
