Inflation Cools in China 

Asian markets were mixed Monday, after China’s consumer price index (CPI) came in at its lowest level since February 2021, while producer prices fell at their fastest rate since December 2015. Investors also unpacked the conclusion of U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s visit to Beijing, which she described as “productive.” In turn, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng and China’s Shanghai Composite added 0.6% and 0.2%, respectively. Elsewhere,  South Korea’s Kospi shed 0.2%, and Japan’s Nikkei dropped 0.6%.

European markets are on the rise in response to China’s cooling data, though investors are still eyeing this week’s stateside bank earnings and economic indicators. France’s CAC 40 was last seen leading the gainers with a 0.7% pop, while the German DAX is 0.6% higher, and London’s FTSE 100 is up 0.5%.
