China HSBC Manufacturing Index Slides To 50.4

An index measuring manufacturing activity in China came in with a score of 50.4 in November, flash survey results from HSBC and Markit Economics revealed on Thursday.

That was well shy of forecasts for 50.8 and down from 50.9 in October.

A score above 50 means expansion in a sector, while a reading below 50 signals contraction.

The data also showed that the flash China Manufacturing Output Index came in 51.3 in November, up from 51.1 in October.
