Chinese Stocks Are Looking Great Right Now

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

From Taki Tsaklanos: One of the few silent uptrends in global stock markets is the one in China. InvestingHaven forecasted almost half a year ago that China’s stock market will go much higher in 2017. That forecast was spot-on. It appears now that this uptrend has (much) more legs.

This article on noticed recently how China’s stock market moved higher alhtough US stocks were calm. adds to it that “the global forecast for the Asian markets [China’s stock market in particular] is upbeat thanks to easing geopolitical concerns and a bump in the price of crude oil.”

MarketWatch makes an explicitly bullish call (though cautiously) on Chinese stocks: “If you are increasingly worried about overreliance on U.S. stocks and looking to either hedge your bets or diversify into other areas of opportunity, the landscape is increasingly looking favorable for China stocks once more.”

The Guardian calls is the ‘Trump trade’, and refers to a rising stock market in China and Japan because of a commodities-friendly policy by Mr. Trump.

China stock market silently moving higher

No matter what you would like to call it, Trump trade or wall of worry, the fact of the matter is that China’s stock market is heading higher.

The Shanghai exchange, which is shown on the chart, made a silent but important breakout in November last year, as suggested by the exceptional chart pattern. The more silent a breakout, the more important it is.

InvestingHaven’s research team wrote in November that smart investors are buying this breakout, and it appeared to be spot-on.

As long as the Shanghai index remains above the rising trendline which started in June 2014, the market in China is in a long term uptrend and is considered to be BULLISH.

The FXI ETF which holds large corporations in China is one of the ways to play a rising China stock market.
