(Yicai Global) April 11 -- China's mainland stock markets opened almost unchanged, as investors expected for the government to reveal economic data for the first quarter.
The Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.01 percent to 3,241.55 points. The Shenzhen Component Index declined 0.14 percent to 10,420.65 points. The ChiNext Index, which tracks growth enterprises in Shenzhen, rose 0.03 percent to 1,727.22 points.
Today, the Chinese government is scheduled to announce major economic data, including indexes for consumer prices and producer prices, as well as foreign direct investment. A report about the money supply will follow this week and that for gross domestic product growth next week.
After double-digit gains in February, major Chinese stock indexes have shown some signs of a slowdown, partly caused by uncertainties in global trade and economic growth.
