    • China's official manufacturing PMI slipped to 50.1 in December from 50.3 in November. While the figure was in line with consensus, it still marked the lowest reading in a year and a half.
    • New export orders recovered modestly, with the sub-index dropping to 49.1 from 48.4, but new orders overall fell to 52.2 from 52.5, suggesting China’s domestic demand is softening.
    • A property slump has had a knock-on effect on manufacturers in many industries, from construction machinery to furniture.
    • With the soft figures, many analysts expect Chinese GDP in Q4 to slow only marginally from 7.3% in Q3, meaning full-year growth will undershoot the government's 7.5% target and mark the weakest expansion in 24 years.

    • After finishing at the end of the line the previous year, Shanghai stocks are closing 2014 as the world’s top-performing major equity market.
    • With most of its gains coming in the past six weeks, the Shanghai Composite Index ended up 52% for the year, as hopes for more aggressive policy stimulus to counter its economic slowdown boosted banks and brokerages.
    • In another record run today, the Shanghai composite closed up 2.2% despite data showing Chinese factory activity slipping in December.

    • Shares in Shanghai fell sharply today, leading losses in Asia as a scarcity of funds brought down the Shanghai Composite Index 3% to settle at 3,035.
    • The mainland market has been on a wild ride over the past six weeks, following the opening of the market to foreign investors in mid-November, the unexpected cutting of interest rates on Nov. 21 and a liquidity shortage.
    • Gains and losses have been exaggerated, with the same period seeing six sessions that finished with a more than 2% gain or loss.

    • The HSBC Flash PMI for December slipped to 49.5 - the weakest in seven months and shy of estimates for 49.8, always good for speculation the government will move to further ease monetary policy.
    • The Shanghai Composite gained 2.3% overnight, closing at its highest level since April 2011. The Hang Seng fell 1.6%, lifting the premium on mainland shares to 19%, the most in three years.
    • The biggest gainers in Shanghai were financial shares (NYSEARCA:CHIX), with that sector's gauge up 6.3%.

    • China’s economy may slow to 7.1% in 2015 from an expected 7.4% this year as a sagging property sector weighs on the world’s second-largest economy, researchers from the nation’s central bank said.
    • Stronger global demand could boost exports, but not by enough to counteract the impact from weakening property investment.
    • China’s economic growth came in at 7.3% in Q3, the slowest pace in five years. Economists have recommended that China lower its growth target to around 7% in 2015.
    • The central bank report also forecast an acceleration of exports to 6.9% growth in 2015 from about 6.1% this year. Imports could expand 5.1% next year from this year's 1.9%.

    • Increasing its lending target for 2014, China has told banks to issue more loans by the end of the year to lift flagging economic growth.
    • The People's Bank of China will now permit banks to lend more than 75% of their deposits and allow banks to lend a record 10T yuan ($1.6T) for all of 2014, up from a previous target of 9.5T yuan, Reuters reports.
    • The move comes just one day after Chinese inflation slipped to a five-year low and follows last month's surprise cut in interest rates.

    • The previously red-hot Shanghai Composite tumbled 5.4% - its biggest drop since 2009 - as Beijing moved to stop local governments from using opaque financing vehicles to raise money for their pet projects.
    • So-called LGFV's have boomed in the country as a way for provinces and cities - under pressure to meet economic targets set by Beijing - to fund projects (like building massive ghost towns). Last night's new rule won't allow bonds rated below AAA to be used as collateral for short-term loans obtained through repo agreements, essentially closing the market for this lower-rated debt.
    • A gauge of financial stocks were lower by 6.3% overnight (related ETF: CHIX). The Hang Seng (NYSEARCA:EWHfell 2.3%.
    • FXI -2.7% premarket

    • China’s Shanghai Composite Index surged above 3,000 for the first time since April 2011 as the country reported a record trade surplus.
    • Though today’s data is seen as a sign of weakness for China’s economy, weak imports left the country with a trade surplus of $54.5B. Exports rose 4.7% from a year earlier, while imports dropped 6.7%, their biggest drop since March.
    • Over the past month, the Shanghai Composite has soared 21% on cheap valuations and expectations of more policy easing. The benchmark closed up 2.8% at 3,020.26 today, after falling as much as 2% in early trading.

    • The Shanghai Composite gained 4.3% overnight, bringing its advance over the past month to 19%, the most among 93 global markets. The index is now higher by 37% year-to-date.
    • The rally comes not just alongside a PBOC rate cut, but as mainland stocks opened up to global investment in early November - exchange volume nearly doubled the previous 30-day average.
    • Among the movers: PetroChina (NYSE:PTR) and Sinopec (NYSE:SNP) both soared by the 10% daily limit.
    • FXI +3.9% premarket
