"Given this gloomy backdrop, we expect that markets will continue to be on the defensive for much of this week, at least until we see more specifics coming out from the EU policy meeting," Edward Meir, an analyst at INTL FCStone, said in a report. If Greece leaves the euro China's economy may be faced with the worst growth in over two decades, economists at China International Capital Corp said in an email report Wednesday. China is currently the world's biggest copper user and will see growth slow to 8.2 percent in 2012 from 9.2 percent in 2011 according to the World Bank.
