From Tyler Durden: Confirming the credit impulse peak is passed (June’s surprise beats), China’s July macro-economic data is ugly. Retail Sales, Industrial Production, and Fixed Asset Investment all fell and missed notably.


For now the reaction is absolutely nothing, but the National Bureau of Statistics reports some ugly data for July:

  • China July Industrial Output MISS Rises 6.4% Y/y; Est. 7.1% (range 6.5%-8.7%, 37 economists)
  • Fixed-asset investment excluding rural households MISS up 8.3% y/y in Jan.-July; est. 8.6% (range 8.4%-9.3%, 35 economists)
  • July retail sales MISS rose 10.4% y/y; est. 10.8% y/y (range 9.5%-11.5%, 37 economists)

China data is the weakest since 2016…

We wonder just how bad it will get…

For now there is zero reaction anywhere as it appears traders are numb to global nuclear war concerns, epic Japanese growth, and dismal Chinese data.

The iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index ETF (NYSE:FXI) rose $0.27 (+0.65%) in premarket trading Monday. Year-to-date, FXI has gained 21.77%, versus a 10.84% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.

FXI currently has an ETF Daily News SMART Grade of A (Strong Buy), and is ranked #1 of 32 ETFs in the China Equities ETFs category.
