Chinese Stocks Enter Bear Market Following 2 More Defaults Overnight

Chinese Stocks Enter Bear Market Following 2 More Defaults Overnight (ZeroHedge, March 20, 2014):

Following the default of 2 more corporations last night, Hang Seng’s index of China Enterprises plunged to 8-month lows and officially entered bear market territory. Overnight angst in the Chinese currency markets (which saw the Yuan trade back to 1-year lows) has sparked broad commodity weakness (as CCFD unwinds en masse) with copper giving back most of yesterday’s major short squeeze gains back. Chinese corporate bond prices also tumbled to one-month lows.

  1. This is just the beginning. China lies about everything, they are just like the US has become. It is just awful for all the fool nations relying on China to pull them out the self created financial traps.
    China has created one more Ponzi scheme, but this time, they are going to get caught.
