The Caixin China manufacturing purchasing managers index, a gauge of nationwide manufacturing activity, rose to 48.3 in October from 47.2 in September. However, a reading below 50 indicates contraction and the index has stayed below that level for eight consecutive months. The official gauge of China’s factory activity, released Sunday, was unchanged at 49.8 in October.
The data “suggests that China’s traditional sector of heavy industry and production will continue to contract for a while, which leads to less demand for oil,” said Vyanne Lai, an energy analyst at National Australia Bank.
