Asian markets retreat as China inflation pushes higher

Published: Nov. 9, 2021 at 11:32 p.m. ET

Stocks sink in Hong Kong and ShanghaA woman browses through vegetables at a neighborhood market in Beijing on Nov. 2. China’s consumer price index, driven mainly by a jump in prices for food and fuel, rose in October.


Asian shares fell Wednesday, tracking Wall Street’s retreat, with Chinese benchmarks leading the decline after the government reported a surge in inflation in October.

China’s consumer price index, a main measure of inflation, rose 1.5% in October, up from 0.7% the month before, the National Bureau of Statistics reported. The surge to a 13-month high was driven mainly by a jump in prices for food and fuel, it said.

Producer prices, or wholesale prices, climbed 13.5%, adding to worries that price pressures might limit the central bank’s ability to adjust its policies to bolster growth. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng HSI, +0.32% dropped 1.2% while the Shanghai Composite index SHCOMP, +0.18% lost 1.2%.

But the latest numbers were exaggerated by low comparative data from last year and underlying price pressures remain low, Julian Evans-Pritchard of Capital Economics said in a report.

“We continue to think that consumer price inflation will remain below 2% in the coming quarters and that inflation is unlikely to be a major constraint on the PBOC’s ability to loosen monetary policy,” he said.

Elsewhere in Asia, Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 NIK, +1.13% lost 0.6% and the Kospi 180721, +1.50% in South Korea declined 1.1%. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 XJO, +0.83% edged 0.3% lower. Stocks fell in Singapore STI, -0.30%, Taiwan Y9999, +0.38% and Indonesia JAKIDX, -0.60%.

On Tuesday on Wall Street, stocks ended moderately lower, breaking an eight-day winning streak that had been fueled by strong company earnings and economic data.

The S&P 500 index SPX, +0.72% lost 0.4% to 4,685.25. The last time the S&P 500 had eight straight days of gains was April 2019. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.50% fell 0.3%, ending at 36,319.98 and the Nasdaq COMP, +1.00% lost 0.6%, to 15,886.54.

The market was pulled lower by companies that rely on consumer spending and technology stocks, which had driven the market higher in recent days.

A decline in bond yields pulled banks’ stock prices lower. Lenders rely on higher yields to charge more lucrative interest. The yield on the 10-year Treasury fell to 1.44% from 1.49% late Monday.


The Labor Department will release its Consumer Price Index for October on Wednesday, giving a more detailed picture on how inflation is impacting consumers.

Benchmark U.S. crude oil CLZ21, -1.10% gained 14 cents to $84.29 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It jumped $2.22 on Tuesday. Brent crude BRNF22, -0.27%, the basis for international pricing, added 34 cents to $85.12 per barrel.

The U.S. dollar USDJPY, -0.14% slipped to 112.83 Japanese yen from 112.86 yen.
