Over the next couple of months, China’s stock market could crash another 50%. It won’t happen overnight. But as I’m about to show you, the bull market in Chinese equities is over. And before the crash is over, investors could lose 20%, 35%, 50%, or even more. Let…

In June 2015, Chinese stockholders thought the world was falling apart. More than half the companies listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange halted trading as the market crashed by nearly 30%. With the sell-off deepening every day, Chinese officials were forced to intervene in the market using a…

Financial turmoil in China could ignite a stock market crash and possible economic collapse in 2015. At least, that’s the opinion of famed analyst Jim Rickards.   “My point is, the worst is not over in China,” the editor of Strategic Intelligence, wrote in an article about the ongoing…

The Chinese stock market is extremely vulnerable to additional episodes of selling. In the process, this could lead to a Chinese economic collapse in 2015 or 2016. A few weeks ago, I discussed the real threat and contagious impact of a bigger correction in the Shanghai Composite Index…

The overall theme of successful stock market investing so far this year has been the record moves by the technology sector, with the NASDAQ staging another one on Monday. As many of you know, there have been two major themes in my investment and trading approach: technology and…

Investors were jumping into stock buying on Thursday morning. But while it may be an encouraging sign for the stock market, my advice is not to be fooled by this dead cat bounce. We will likely see oversold buying after bouts of deep selling (as we have been…

Wall Street opened sharply higher on Friday July 10th, as investors cheered the Chinese rebound and felt optimistic over the new submitted proposal by Greece to creditors to win new funds and avert bankruptcy. Chinese stocks rose sharply for the second day on Friday, with the Shanghai Composite…

China’s recent stock market crash has sent many stocks to the floor. It might be a good opportunity to invest after the burst of the giant stock market bubble. As billionaire investor Warren Buffett once said, “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.”…

While Greece is in the headlines as it deals with trying to get funding for its massive $270 billion debt, the real problem that could play out the great crash of 2015 resides in China. There is a massive stock market bubble brewing in China. And before you…

Recently, widely followed investor Dennis Gartman told CNBC that China’s bull market is just getting started. However, looking at the fundamentals, I wonder how long this bull market will last. (Source: CNBC, May 24, 2015.) Stock Market Flying High The stock market in China has been going up…

A few years ago, investors couldn’t get enough of Chinese stocks. This led to numerous frauds committed by crooks in China that has since tarnished the reputation and reliability of all Chinese companies, whether they’re legitimate or not, despite their operating in one of the top growth areas…

China is facing some growth issues, but so are the majority of the countries in the Western Hemisphere. The country’s new government leader, President Xi Jinping, came on board in March 2013 and is planning to change the landscape of China vis-a-vis a new focus on domestic consumption…

We all know about some of the insane valuations with social media and Internet services stocks, such as Twitter, Inc. (NYSE/TWTR), Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ/FB), and Yelp, Inc.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is currently shutting down numerous Chinese shell companies trading on U.S. exchanges, such as the over-the-counter market and the highly speculative Pink Sheets stock exchange. This is good and is something the SEC needs to continue to pursue and enforce, so domestic…

It’s no secret that China is the biggest market for numerous raw materials, such as cement, steel, coal, copper, and oil, along with end-products, such as vehicles and mobile phones. The growth of the middle class and wages in the country is the vital attraction for companies to…
