Dismal China, India data signal slowing growth

 By Elaine Kurtenbach

AP Business Writer / May 11, 2012


Friday's data are especially troubling because they indicate weakening domestic demand in India and China, markets many had looked to hopefully as bastions of growth in the faltering global economy.

"Things look very shaky in Europe and the U.S. economy is decelerating. The last thing we need is for the emerging world to downshift. Unfortunately the data today points in that direction," said Frederic Neumann, co-head of Asian economics research at HSBC in Hong Kong.

"We fear that without further stimulus India and China will continue to slow," he said.

 Hong Kong, meanwhile, reported Friday that its first-quarter economic growth stalled, expanding only 0.4 percent, as exports shrank. The government of the southern Chinese financial center warned Friday of further risks from the European debt crisis.

All those that thought staying long equities after May 1st was a good idea will get a reality check in terms of major losses.

Even big bad JPM had a $2 Billion trading loss.
