Markets will eye China's data dump this week in the hope of gleaning insight into the health of the world's second-largest economy, and what it means for the rest of the world.
On Sunday, China reported a 1.8 percent on-year drop in exports to $172.7 billion for April, after an 11.5 percent surge in March. Imports dropped 10.9 percent to $127.2 billion on-year, on top of a 13.8 percent fall in March.
On Tuesday, Beijing will release April consumer price and producer price indexes (CPI and PPI).
"CPI inflation is likely to remain around 2.3 percent year-on-year, [while] producer price deflation is likely to continue to abate," Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy and chief economist at AMP Capital, said in a weekly note.
China's April monetary aggregates are also due on Tuesday. Then on Saturday China will release March fixed asset investment, April industrial production and April retail sales.
