China to Release Major Indicators This Week

China will publish a raft of economic indicators for May, including trade balance on Monday, inflation on Tuesday, retail sales, industrial production, and fixed asset investment on Thursday.

“A very big week for Chinese data which will provide further guidance on the pace of economic activity,” National Australia Bank (NAB) wrote in a note.

Trade figures are expected to show exports falling 5 percent on year and imports plunging 10.7 percent on year, according to a Reuters poll.
