China Stocks Rise on Trade Data

Markets in Asia got a boost today, as investors looked at Chinese trade data that showed an unexpected surge in exports in May, while imports fell more than forecast. The release had China’s Shanghai Composite up 0.9%, and the yuan sinking to new year-to-date lows. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 2.3%, South Korea’s Kospi made a 1.3% pop as auto stocks soared, and Japan’s Nikkei rose 1.2% on promising revised gross domestic product (GDP) data.

News that Trump will no longer be imposing tariffs on Mexico had European markets inching higher midday. London’s FTSE 100 rose 0.5%, despite disappointing economic data that showed the U.K. economy contracted in April, sparked by a drop in car production numbers. The French CAC 40 is 0.3% higher, and the German DAX is closed for holiday.
