With the coming of holiday period including Thanksgiving Day, Christmas and Chinese Spring Festival, more manufacturers launched new products, resulting in price cutting of prodcuts, despite consumer confidence upbeat, the industrial condition will still have some changement; just like Chinese  eight-day holiday (the National Day and Mooncake Day), didn't largely promote the consumption market; in addition. the US presidental election result will also bring a influence to the market in the fourth quarter.

Bolaji: Thanks for compiling these positives together--it definitely helps the outlook for Q4. Q3 news is still coming in and most of it is ugly. It's hard to be optimistic about Q4 but that's largely anecdotal at this point. These reports put some data behind reasons to feel upbeat. I much prefer optimism, personally and professionally.
