    Default Against a positive outlook

    Dear Teachers

    In the following sentence, is "against" below means "not" or "opposite"?

    Against a positive medium-term growth outlook, Chinese shares are also trading at attractive valuations.

    Regards

    Anthony the learner

    It means 'In contrast to'.
