China Bears Growing Comfortable

____________________________

Back on October 1st of this year, I highlighted the weekly descending triangle that was starting to become apparent on the Shanghai Composite. In particular, I noted:

In a brilliant misdirection scheme that only¬†Keyser Soze¬†could pull off, it may very well be that the issues in Europe and Washington D.C. are nothing more than red herrings that distract us from the real danger: A hard landing in China. We know that the Shanghai Composite has displayed all of the characteristics of a secular bear market since crashing in 2008 after an exuberant stock bubble. At issue now is whether we see a retest of those major lows down at 1,664…(O)n the weekly chart of the Shanghai..2,300 is an absolute monster of a key level to watch.

Presently, the Shanghai breached that key 2,300 area. Perhaps what I wrote back then is the case after all, as noted China bears James Chanos and Hugh Hendry have implied all along. In essence, Europe may be the great distraction from the damage sustained in China. Either way, from a stock trader’s perspective, the bulls had better pray that this move is a mere false breakdown. Otherwise, those 2008/2009 lows will suddenly seem not so far away for galvanized China bears to attack. It is also hard to imagine U.S. stocks being able to manage any type of upside if the Shanghai breakdown proves true.

Thus, China merits your close attention.

    China is indeed headed down the tubes. Why anyone anywhere figured their accounting was more honest than the USSA is beyond any sane human being.

    Every government and central bank on earth is now pure “smoke and mirrors”… and FAKE.

    An interesting comment about economic reporting in China vis a vis the Soviet Union. I had already drawn that parallel with the USA, where the figures for unemployment and inflation have become so increasingly distorted. But not the USSR. As the central authorities come to essentially believe their own figures as time goes on, their planning decisions become progressively divorced from reality, as the infomation feedback loop is dysfunctional. Woe is me.
