China reported industrial output for the month of July rose 6.4 percent on-year, missing expectations.
Market watchers are keeping their eyes on the health of the the world's second-largest economy ahead of a key Communist Party Congress in the fall where a leadership reshuffle is expected.
Analysts were expecting a rise of 7.2 percent against a 7.6 percent expansion in June for the country's value-added industrial output.
July retail sales rose 10.4 percent from a year ago, also missing a 10.8 percent forecast from analysts polled by Reuters.
January to July fixed asset investment meanwhile rose 8.3 percent from a year ago, against Reuters' poll forecast of 8.6 percent.
