since then the stock market has climbed higher and higher....... looks to me like an excuse for the slump. the next days will be key to see if this could lead to more or the excess continues.
ganz schön happig. ob gesunde korrektur oder der start von etwas ernsten? lustig wie jetzt die erhöhung der bakreserven als (teil) begründung herangezogen wird. lest euch den link oben vom 16. feb. durch. danach sind die aktien lustig weiter gestiegen. die nächsten tage werden wohl entscheiden ob es bei einer "gesunden" korrektur bleibt.
China's Stocks Have Biggest Tumble in 10 Years; Banks Plunge
China's stocks tumbled the most in 10 years as some investors judged record gains in key indexes as excessive. Citic Securities Co., the nation's biggest publicly traded brokerage, led declines.
``The market's very sensitive as it's been trading at record levels and some stocks are considered overvalued,'' '
China Minsheng Banking Corp. led declines by lenders as the central bank raised the reserve ratio this week for the fifth time in eight months, reducing funds available to commercial banks for lending. ( on top of several rate hikes and some warning words from officials, funny that the imminent reaction on the decision were higher stock prices...until today. maybe they should have use a more clear warning sign.....like this one :-)
dazu noch diverse zinserhöhungen sowie warnende worte der offiziellen. die unmittelbare reaktion waren im übrigen höhere aktienkurse....bis heute. evtl hätten sie ihre warnungen deutlicher formulieren sollen...z.b wie das teil oben.... :-)
here is a quote that should have had an impact / diese zitat hätte eigentlich wirkung zeigen müssen :
Cheng Siwei, vice-chairman of the National People’s Congress has warned investors that “in terms of profits, returns and other indicators, 70 per cent of listed companies on the mainland do not meet international standards”.
The Shanghai and Shenzhen 300 Index, which tracks yuan- denominated A shares listed on China's two exchanges, plunged 250.18 points, or 9.2 percent, to 2457.49 at the close. The measure, which jumped 13 percent in the past six sessions, closed at a record 2707.68 yesterday.
The Shanghai Composite Index, which tracks the bigger of China's stock exchanges, plunged 8.8 percent to 2771.79. Today's tumble was the biggest since Feb. 18, 1997. The Shenzhen Composite Index, which covers the smaller one, dropped 8.5 percent to 709.81. The measure has surged 29 percent this year.
Today's rout wiped out $107.8 billion from a stock market that doubled in the past year. The benchmark has gained or fallen at least 3 percent on 10 different days this year.
Stocks surged last year after a government plan to make more than $200 billion of state-owned stock tradable revived investor demand and paved the way for sales by some of the nation's biggest companies. ( i think this could be only the beginning of a healthy correction..../das könnte der anfang einer sehr ausgedehnten korrektur sein....)
and i think this one is even more impressive. showing the massive outperformance to the rest of the emerging markets and the excess in the last quarter!
dieser chart hier zeigt noch genauer wie sehr die chinesischen aktien den rest der ebenfalls boomenden em abgehängt haben. man beachte nur das letzt quartal....
``China has gone up so much,'' said Winson Fong, who manages $2 billion as chief investment officer at SG Asset Management in Singapore. ``It's not a bad thing to have a healthy correction as it provides an opportunity to correct over-valuations and allow people who have missed out to start buying.''
