China, the world's number one copper importer and also second largest buyer of gold behind India, disclosed that its July’s fixed-asset investment for edited up 8.1%, below a tempo of 8.8% observed year-on-year. The country’s industrial production earned 6.0%, which is below an expected 6.1% year-on-year profit, while retail sales ticked up 10.2% under the expected 10.5% year-on-year surge observed.

Overnight, gold slumped on Thursday, amid a relatively steady greenback because cautious market participants waited for the publication of monthly retail as well as consumer data at week's end for greater clarity on the current strength of the American economy.
