China Reports Weak Trade Data

China reported weaker August trade data.  According to the ministry of finance. exports contracted -1% year over year versus the 2.2% rise that was expected. Imports into China contracted -5.6% year over year versus expectations that they would fall by -6.4%.  Some reports suggest the weak data seen so far for August will lead the PBOC to add more stimulus.  The PBOC last week reduced regulatory requirements which is a subtle way of adding stimulus.  The Chinese central bank is likely to wait to see how the banking system reacts to this latest cut before easing again.
