Gold goes down notwithstanding dismal China’s data

Today China-US trade negotiations also gained some attention today after American leader proposed to push back a summit with China’s leader Xi Jinping until a final agreement on trade is reached.

As Trump revealed to reporters, they can really complete the deal and the final points need to be negotiated.
