Fed researchers find “substantial downside risk to Chinese growth outlook”

Research by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York indicates a signal of financial strain in China.

Although its peak in October was lower than the levels observed at the start of 2020, the still high stress level signaled a substantial downside risk to China’s growth outlook.

Boldness is mine.
