Gold Technical Analysis: Dollar Strength May Invite Buying

Analysts say "raising concerns" about Evergrande are raising concerns about a larger economic crisis in China that could put downward pressure on many goods that China consumes. Evergrande threatened to default on debts of more than $300 billion, causing sharp losses in the US and global financial markets at the beginning of this week's trading.

Among the big questions for financial markets and investors is if this could be China's "Lehman moment" - one that leads to a situation with more systemic risks than China realizes, and if the country will be able to contain the fallout from this crisis. Analysts said yes, referring to the bankruptcy of the global financial services company that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis.
