(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.
