China Injects More Liquidity, Strengthens Yuan As Foreigners Dump Record Amount Of Japanese Stocks

The evening started with disappointing Japanese trade data cross the board - weakest imports, exports, and trade balance in 6 months - which follows the largest selling of Japanese stocks by foreigners ever. China opened with the first rise in margin debt in 6 days, stocks were mixed in the pre-open after last night's epic farce ramp. PBOC strengthened the Yuan fix modestly and also injected another CNY 40 billion.

 

Japanese trade data was disappointing...

  • *JAPAN AUG. EXPORTS RISE 3.1% Y/Y, EST.. +4.3%
  • *JAPAN AUG. IMPORTS FALL 3.1% Y/Y, EST -2.5%
  • *JAPAN AUG. TRADE DEFICIT IS 569.7B YEN, EST 540.0B

All at 6-month lows and missed expectations.

Foreigners have never sold more Japanese stocks ever...

 

Which explains why The BoJ was buying so heavily!! And for now, a rampacious bid open is being sold...

Stocks are mixed after last night's epic ramp idiocy..

  • *CHINA'S SHANGHAI COMPOSITE INDEX FALLS 1% TO 3,119.89 AT OPEN
