    China's manufacturing sector losing steam, fast

    CNBC
    Activity in China's manufacturing sector slowed markedly in August, twin surveys showed on Tuesday, the latest sign that the world's second largest economy is fast losing momentum. The final Caixin/Markit manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) slipped to 47.3 in August, the lowest reading since March 2009 and down from 47.8 in July. The reading, however, was a touch better than the flash reading of 47.1. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion in activity while one below points to a contraction.

    Oil's three big days wipe out a month of losses

    Bloomberg
    Opec signaled future cuts to production and the US lowered output estimates, putting oil back into a bull market less than a week after hitting a six-year low. Prices surged 8.8% in New York, capping the biggest three-day gain in 25 years. The Energy Information Administration changed the way it calculates how much oil comes out of the ground and 13.2 million barrels vanished with a government blog post. Opec, producer of about 40% of the world’s oil, renewed its commitment to talk to other exporters to achieve “fair and reasonable prices” and it says it won’t prop up oil prices by cutting supply unless non-member nations agree to share the burden. So is the glut over? Depends on who you ask.

    Hawkish Fed talks tough, but ready to wait
    In part two of my articles on Jackson Hole, I speculate that the Fed will delay its hike until December. The Fed was hawkish at the symposium, partly as a test balloon, and partly to make the eventual hike easier for the markets. Meanwhile the ECB understands the problems, but it will sit and wait until the Fed's hike is out of the way. The ECB believes that more should be done to lift "good inflation".

    Greece says hello to bickering, bailouts and ballots
    The Greeks are heading to the polls again this month, following months of political bickering, banking brinkmanship, stockmarket gyrations and creditor compromises. And exhausted voters may even face yet another election if the outcome of the September poll leaves the nation with a fragile, unworkable coalition. The nation that has long been considered the cradle of democracy may now be becoming ungovernable.
