    • 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%.
