China PMI Prints Most "Schrodinger-ish" In 23 Months As Japan Ups Growth 'Guess'

It's 815ET on New Year's Eve and China PMI just printed below expectations at 50.6 - very marginally in expansion. The trouble is this is now the most divergent from the HSBC China PMI since January 2011 indicating once again that nothing matters and yet at the same time - the PBOC ain't coming to the rescue anytime soon. Meanwhile, in another epic realm of imaginary finance, Japan just increased its growth expectation to 2% for next year - whilst we are at it, we 'expect' rainbow-pooping unicorns for everyone next year (we just 'hope' noone is disappointed).
