On Friday China’s stock market has not changed. Hong Kong is in a green zone
The Chinese stock market has finished the Friday’s session almost unchanged. Investors were engaged in the study of the economic statistics before the next week release of the information about GDP for the III quarter. This should help to better understand the state of the Chinese economy.
On Thursday it became known that in September China’s exports had declined much stronger than expected. This means that the signs of the recovery of the second largest world economy, probably, have proved to be short-lived.
Meanwhile, the official information on the inflation on Friday has signaled an increase in producer prices and consumer prices in China. In the first month of the autumn the producer prices have soared for the first time over 5 years. This fact may contribute to the growth of companies’ profits and the reduction of the corporate debt.

Shanghai Composite, the index of the Shanghai Stock Exchange, has grown by 0.1 percent and ended the day at the mark of 3.063,81 points.

The papers of the affiliated companies Sinochem Group and ChemChina, which are quoted on the stock exchange, soared after Reuters had reported that the company was likely to merge soon.
On Friday the Hong Kong stock market has ended the session in the green zone as the news from China about the sudden rise in producer prices made it possible to slightly ease the pressure on manufacturers and miners in China.

The index of Chinese companies that are traded in Hong Kong has risen by 1.1 percent, ending the session at the mark of 9.601,40 points.
