Chinese shares fell for a third straight session today after patchy economic data over the weekend raised doubts about the earnings outlook for Chinese firms.
The CSI300 index of the leading Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share listings closed down 0.6 percent at 2,592.4. The Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.4 percent.
China's consumer prices rose 3.2 percent in February from a year ago, its highest in 10 months, while industrial production growth in the first two months of 2013 was the lowest since October 2012 - the starting point of China's nascent economic recovery. ( C) Reuters
