China Wobbles, What Has Been Shorted

George Berbard Shaw Quote

In 20 short years China equals (if you trust US and Chinese GDP numbers) US GDP.

Every great nation has it growth pains, after all the US of A was bailed out a few times over the last 200 years (J P Morgan in 1893), so you can expect China to have a few hard landings over the next 100 years. That is simply the law of the business cycle, no matter how modern day central bankers think they can flat line the down swings. Nope they can not, only delay.

This is what has been sold down on Chinese wobbles, and you can bet the momentum traders will push these lower. The FAT LADY has not yet sung on this down swing!

Copper slump due to demand slump. Chinese uses 30% of worlds copper.
