China stocks fall on weak factory inflation, trade war worries

China stocks fell on Wednesday after the previous session™s rally, as weak factory inflation data and prospects of an escalation in the Sino-U.S. trade war curbed risk appetite.

The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 0.8%, to 3,691.10 points, while the Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.6%, to 2,909.38 points. China's factory gate inflation slowed amid sluggish commodity demand and faltering manufacturing activity, reinforcing worries about slowing economic growth.

In a sign that trade tensions could intensify, U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday defended the use of tariffs as part of his trade strategy while China vowed a tough response if the United States insists on escalating trade tensions.
