Chinese Service Sector Contracts At Slower Pace In March

China's services activity contracted in March, albeit at a slower pace, as the sector faces challenging conditions in March, with the coronavirus, or covid-19 outbreak, survey data from IHS Markit showed Friday.

The Caixin services Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 43.0 in March from 26.5 in February. However, a score below 50 indicates contraction.

The composite output index advanced to 46.7 in March from 27.5 a month ago. But this was the second-lowest score in eleven years.

The fall was commonly associated with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on demand and supply chains.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
