China Data Disappoints in July

China reported industrial output for the month of July rose 6.4 percent on-year, missing expectations.

Market watchers are keeping their eyes on the health of the the world’s second-largest economy ahead of a key Communist Party Congress in the fall where a leadership reshuffle is expected.

Analysts were expecting a rise of 7.2 percent against a 7.6 percent expansion in June for the country’s value-added industrial output.
