Key gauges of inflation in China and the U.S. highlight a relatively quiet week for economic data.


China’s consumer price gains likely moderated in October. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal project the consumer-price index will rise 0.75% from a year earlier, which would be the weakest inflation reading in the past decade. The country’s producer-price index, a gauge of factory-gate prices, likely declined 2% in October compared with September’s 2.1% fall.
