Fourth quarter economic growth data from China

6.4 % y/y

  • expected 6.4% y/y, prior 6.5%

for the full year, 6.6%

  • 6.6% expected, prior 6.7%

For the Q4 q/q 1.5%

  • expected 1.5%, prior 1.6%

No beats, no misses. OK then. Q4 slowing down a little but the full year hits the target OK (as if it wouldn't). Anyway, headlines is headlines and will be read as supportive. Dunno for how long though.
