China ETF hits New High

Mar 17 2008

China ETF hits New High

   Who would have thought 4 months ago that the Chinese market would pull back as radically as it has in such a short amount of time? Every bubble is going to burst but with the Olympics around the corner, common logic was the rally would continue until after the summer.

   Peeking close to 220 at the end of October, The iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index (FXI) is now down to 127, a 42% decline. Benefitting from the decline and making the most of a bad situation is a new(er) Exchnage Traded Fund called the Proshares UltraShort FTSE/Xinhua China 25 (FXP). This fund reached a new high today moving 2.5% higher as the Chinese along with the US market continues to show signs of problems.

   For technical traders, the FXI has broken through resistance and the US market is not forming a bottom formation but hitting lower lows each week. Stocks may rally in the short term as the Federal Reserve continues to be very active but these rallies will represent an opportunity to buy the FXP or short the FXI as the China bubble continues to correct itself.
