hahahaha. The Shenzhen and Shanghai stock exchanges were down more than 8%. This was the largest drop since the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. A lot of the stocks fell the daily maximum of 10%. This is crazy. The best performers like the big banks (Bank of China, ICBC, China Merchant's), the Airlines (Air China, China Southern), construction companies, communications companies (China Mobile, China Unicom) were all down huge.
What does that mean?
- The Chinese stock market and economy has a major influence and effect on the global marketplace.
- This shows the uncertainty of the Chinese market
- The year of the boar with double luck and double prosperity ive been hearing about has an interesting start
- The west is really afraid of China. Everyone I know in China knows that this year will be a great year for stocks. With a sudden jolt in the china markets, the US dialed it back and killed their market. While I was watching CNBC channel during it, many people were talking about how this day was unseen in their 20 years of working as a trader.
