SURVEY: CHINA FACTORY ACTIVITY AT 6-MONTH LOW

HONG KONG (AP) — A survey shows that manufacturing activity in China has fallen to a six-month low in November, reflecting sluggishness in the world No. 2 economy and weakness abroad.

HSBC’s preliminary purchasing managers’ index released Thursday fell to 50.0 this month from 50.4 in October.

The index uses a 100-point scale on which numbers below 50 indicate contraction while numbers above show expansion.

The latest reading indicates there’s no change in overall conditions from the previous month.
