RAPAPORT... Retail sales of gold, silver and jewelry in China increased in the first two months of 2018, the nation’s data department said.

Total revenue for the category rose 3% year on year to $80.4 billion (CNY 509 billion) in January and February, the National Bureau of Statistics of China said in a statement Monday. Retail sales of all consumer goods increased 10%, while online sales climbed 37%. The period included Chinese New Year, which fell in February.

This improved demand was also reflected in exports of Swiss watches to China, which jumped 22% year on year in February, according to the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry.
