Markets mixed following US jobs data, weak Chinese exports

Markets mixed following US jobs data, weak Chinese exports World markets have started the week with mixed reaction to data over the past few days. Jobs data from the US Friday was not outstanding but it was solid enough for analysts to price in a rise in interest rates by the Fed next month. Meanwhile Chinese data over the weekend showed that the world’s second-largest economy is stumbling with exports and producer prices both declining. That weakness has also hit oil prices. This week brings some key indicators for the global economy with data from the US and China on retail sales and industrial production and Asian reports on GDP for Singapore and Hong Kong. Economists are expecting that Chinese data will lead to further stimulus.
