Hi,
Do the Chinese have a futures market for their Shanghai Composite index? I would think so, but haven't been able to find out what it is called and where it is traded.
I had a look at the Bloomberg website and it only quotes the futures for the Nikkei, Hang Seng and SPI. I would think that the Shanghai Composite is begining to be more relevant than the Hang Seng in this day and age.
The Shanghai Composite seems to be in a free fall and the world seems to ignore it whilst concentrating on the 'greenshoots' of the US market. Am I missing the point?
Please enlighten me.
Eternally thankful.

Sorry, not an answer to your main question, but the world is not ignoring the Chinese stockmarket ATM, there is a lot of focus on it indeed.

What about the Hang Seng China H-Share futures contract? Probably the closest thing?

Cheers,

There are probably going to many theories, but to point a finger at a specific catalyst for the recent falls I would say the figures released on August 11 (might have been 10th?) there, showing slower exports, slower investment, and a big fall in loans. A lot of talk that a big part of the run up in the market was liquidity-driven so the reduction in lending was scary for those expecting a continued climb.

Here are a few articles from Aug 11/12 discussing the economic releases.


Reuters: China's economy takes a breather; recovery intact

BBC: China economy shows improvement

Bloomberg: China May Delay Monetary Tightening as Exports, New Loans Drop

All this coming against a background of a long, sustained rally, talk of dodgy economic figures (an ongoing concern wrt these figures out of China), a build up of inventory of raw materials there that had appeared to have stopped ... But as for specifics I would say those figures of August 11.

They were before the 11th as I was talking about a likely turn in the SSE on the 7th due to the loan restrictions ;) and I was probably a few days late there...

Often hard to tell what drives the Shanghai market whether it's fundamentals or simply the State choosing to put out a certain story.. One thing they were uncomfortable with was the speculation in the stock-market, so they have fixed that nicely :) When you think about it though, maybe not that much different to our own smoke and mirrors in the media, just in a different form.

Thanks gfresh -
I think we need a 'China' thread here to keep a watch on this sort of stuff, it is these sorts of things that can serve as, at the very least, a 'heads-up'.
