China Report: Growth probably slowed.
“A bit of pep in recent Chinese numbers is encouraging. At least as important as the short-term bounce, though, is the long-term trajectory. The Middle Kingdom may lose its exceptionalism and start looking more like the U.S. and Europe in ways that seemed barely conceivable during the 1990s and the first decade of this century, when China mania was in full bloom.
Much helium has been expended on projections that China’s gross domestic product will surpass the U.S.’s sometime in the coming decade; very little attention has been paid to what might happen after that.
First, let’s look at the recent boomlet. China slowed significantly into the end of last year. Since then, things have been looking better, albeit from a low base. The closely watched manufacturing purchasing managers’ index rose to 50.5 in March from 49.2 the previous month, crossing back into expansion territory. While this is the biggest increase since 2012, the current level still trails the 51-plus average over the past decade. A jump in consumer prices and firmer factory prices have added to the idea things are on the mend.
Small Peak in a Deep Valley
China’s PMI rise is well and good, but context also matters
This week, the International Monetary Fund trimmed its growth forecasts for the world and some major economies. China was an exception; it went up a smidge, to 6.3% from 6.2 % In fact, things are looking brighter, with the housing scene improving and the Shanghai composite index climbing almost a third so far this year.
Nevertheless, there is a limit to what policy can do when long-term forces shape a pronounced slackening. In a thoughtful note last week, Capital Economics posits that China will slow to growth of about 2% by 2030.

The Bearish Gartley pattern on the H4 chart and Bearish Three Drives pattern on the H1 chart were completed. We have sold AUDUSD at 0.71880 on Friday. Our targets are 0.7165 and 0.71400.
As seen on the above H1 chart Aussie is trading in an ascending channel. If it breaks out the channel at 0.71400, it will be the end of the near term Bullish Trend. Bears will try to send the pair towards 0.71250 and 0.71100.
The upside is capped by SMA 200 Daily at 0.72000. The bearish pressure will continue as long as the pair stays below 0.7200.
I will update as soon as we have a fresh opportunity.
