AsiaPac Stocks Tumble After Japan GDP As China Trade Data Looms

Tyler Durden's picture

Following a modest revision to Japanese GDP (still -1.1% and recession-y) and with all eyes glued to China's trade data, Chinese and Japanese stocks are not folowing the panic-buying short-squeeze-driven lead of US equities. Both are down hard in the early AsiaPac trading (with China down for the first time in six days post-G-20).

It's not working Mr Kuroda...


And the markets are starting to realize it...


This is China's first losing day in 6 since the G-20 meeting ended such a dud...(and the world rallied on ECB hope)

The market indexes in America have been rigged since 1993. The true valuation is much lower than 666.

The run up was to grab the last of the morons and allow insiders to cash out.  That is complete, time to rob the public one last time.  This is really sick to watch!

From that article:

According to Julian Evans-Pritchard, an economist at Capital Economics in Singapore, the severe fall in exports largely reflected changes in the timing of the Lunar Year in China this year.

"In 2015, the holiday fell unusually late which meant that more of the pre-holiday rush to meet orders and less of the post holiday disruptions took place in February, causing exports to jump 48.9 percent year-on-year," he said.

not sure what to make of it all
