A private survey showed that China's manufacturing engine cranked back into growth mode in June, expanding at the fastest pace in three months after unexpectedly contracting in May "China's manufacturing PMI rebound is a silver lining and overall inflation is likely to be contained despite bottoming," Mizuho Bank analysts said in a note.
