“VERY SERIOUS”

|| By FITSNEWS || Stocks in China took another brutal beating on Monday, setting off a chain reaction in global markets – one threatening the New World Order’s latest artificially inflated equity bubble

The only difference between this time and 2008?  The central banks have no more money to print, no ability to lower interest rates any further, no trillion-dollar “stimuli”  … nothing they can do to stop the bleeding, in other words.

Although that might actually wind up being for the better … you know, given the results.

Anyway, while you were sleeping China’s CSI 300 was down 8.8 percent, its ChiNext index was down 8.1 percent and the Shenzhen Composite was down 7.7 percent – representing the biggest one-day bloodbath since 2007.

China’s biggest market – the Shanghai Composite – was down 8.5 percent, putting it nearly 40 percent down for the year.

Meanwhile Europe’s Stoxx 600 plunged by 5.3 percent – its biggest one-day drop since 2011.

“China driven macro panic,” one analyst told Reuters.

“Very serious,” a Deutsche Bank executive told Bloomberg.

Ya think?

In pre-market trading on Monday, Dow Futures were down by as much as 600 points and Nasdaq futures were down by nearly 200 points.

And that’s after last week’s brutal 1,000-point drop, the Dow’s worst week in four years.

This is gonna get very, very ugly, in other words …

UPDATE: Yikes. U.S. stocks pummeled …

All of China’s bloodletting is doing nothing more than letting them bleed themselves out? Nobody saw that coming. *laughs*

You don’t buy North Korea. You invade North Korea by putting the food trucks up front, and the NK Army lays down their weapons in about 3 hours.

FitsNews hates any kind of market intervention by the Fed, but part of the market jitters may be a result of the FOMC hinting that policy interest rates may be raised at the September meeting.

Larry Summers frets that the economy is in a state of “secular stagnation” and that “New conditions require new policies. There is much that should be done, such as steps to promote public and private investment so as to raise the level of real interest rates consistent with full employment. Unless these new policies are implemented, inflation sharply accelerates, or euphoria in markets breaks out, there is no case for the Fed to adjust policy interest rates.

Certainly euphoria is not breaking out in the markets today.

As of 9:04 AM the NASDAQ has been halted three times…lol….and to think some laugh at China’s attempt to stem the blood flow as deem it anti free market.

Who knows if this is really the “big one” or not, regardless hundreds of trillions in derivatives are one day going to have their say whether it’s now or later….aside from he broader implications of sustained Fed manipulated interest rates that are much lower than a free market would allow, coupled with the corresponding monetary policy.

The markets will always win eventually…it’s the timing that no one really knows.

CORRECTION: Shanghai Stock Exchange is down nearly 40% from its high in June, but is only down 0.77% for the year.That is a big difference.

So you took $9,000 in gains? But those gains would have been $15,000 this afternoon? Is that what you’re saying?

True true. I have no idea his position, was just pointing out at least some people made hay while the sun was shining. Of course we all know he’s “short” somewhere, just maybe not in the market.

Before we all jump off the cliff and buy gold, here’s how this plays out. So we have a massive stock sell off primarily in the BRIC (well now BIC) countries (China, Brazil, India). That will trigger investers in the NYSE (and NSDQ) to do the same initially. All that money, however, has to go somewhere. It will flood into the US bond markets (already 10-year Treasury is below 2% meaning demand is high for safety of US bonds). So over the next 60 days US consumers will jump on the lower interest rates (mortgages usually track 200 basis points or 2% above 10-year Treasuries). Investors who have pulled their money out into bonds (most will scarf up 30-90 day notes) will wait this out to see where it goes. They’ll also keep a sizable chunck in cash. Once the market settles, they’ll start to migrate back to US stocks so this 10% correction will be erased back to the 17,000 mark within 60 days, and then 30 days later we’ll see that number increase. If you have the cash, good day for fishing, but that capital will need some patience for this to return back to 17,000. But given underlying numbers (pretty good corporate profits for US companies and the increasingly stronger housing market), we’ll ride this out fairly well. People are screaming “remember the tech bubble” but really they need to be viewing this in context of the 1998/99 correction to emerging markets in SE Asia.
