On Monday, the safe-haven metal prices have little changed due to data showed china’s economic growth slowed to its lowest in at least 27 years.
China’s second-quarter annual GDP growth expectedly dropped to a twenty-seven year low of 6.2 %, but its quarterly growth version came out as 1.6%, beating the forecasts. The reports of June on industrial production, retail sales, and urban investment were high expectations.
A yellow metal gold had inched 0.1% lower to $1,411.29 per ounce, adding some losses ahead of the U.S. session. The market is expecting a surge in gold prices due to Chinese growth data which is the slowest in at least 27 years. Anyway if you look at the larger image, it continues to above the 61.8% Fibo level.
