Base metals pulled back from a two-week high on pressure from a stronger dollar and continued concerns about weaker global demand for the industrial metal. are also bracing for a slew of Chinese economic data, with inflation, trade, retail sales and industrial production reports all due this week. Today’s China’s trade balance came in a notch lower than expectations where the overall surplus came in at $54.10 billion, compared to an expected $63.30 billion. Also in Japan, third quarter GDP slumped 0.8% year-on-year compared to a 0.2% fall seen and fell 0.2% quarter on-quarter compared to a 0.1% drop expected. For the day we recommend a sell in all metals except All where a range bound trade can emerge.
