Reuters ahead with dollar figures for China trade

Reuters led by more than 8 minutes with closely watched dollar figures for China trade released on Oct. 14, which showed a bigger than expected drop in imports and a rise in China’s trade surplus, as the trade dispute with the United States drags on.

Market reaction:

Although the weak trade data was overshadowed by news of possible progress in U.S.-China trade talks, it added to economic worries that weighed on Chinese shares.
