>* Trading halted as CSI300 slumps 7 pct, circuit breakers hit
>* Two surveys point to shrinking China factory activity
>* Investors worry about a glut of share supplies
>* Further losses in yuan add to uncertainty
>SHANGHAI, Jan 4 Chinese stock markets tumbled 7 percent in their opening session of 2016 on Monday as weak factory activity surveys and falls in the yuan added to concerns about the struggling economy, forcing exchanges to suspend trade for the first time.
>Early losses quickly snowballed in the afternoon, with trading suspended around 0530 GMT, about 90 minutes before the regular close.
Selling intensified after a brief 15-minute trading halt early in the afternoon when main indexes had shed 5 percent, and activity in Shanghai and Shenzhen was halted for the day soon after.
It was the first day that the >China markets so-called "circuit breakers", intended to curb volatility, had been in effect.
>The blue-chip CSI300 index .CSI300 ended down 7 percent at 3,470.41 points, while the Shanghai Composite Index lost 6.9 percent to 3,296.66.
Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index was pulled down 3 percent in response.
>A private survey early in the day showed China's factory activity contracted for the 10th straight month in December, and at a sharper pace than in November.
An official survey on Friday, which focuses on larger, state-owned firms, showed a fifth month of contraction, though a pick-up in the services sector could cushion the impact on the broader economy.
Investors also dumped stocks ahead of the imminent expiration of a share sales ban on listed companies' major shareholders, which had been imposed during the market crash last summer
REMINDER THAT SHIT IS FUCKING UP
what is happening?! why now?! why the delay to [current year + 1]?! where were the signs?!
You are lucky that we are allies.
Everyone predicted that China would surpass the US and look what is happening instead.
Hehe China will be the first economy to crash.
The Japanese should sit back...get comfy...and enjoy the Chinese people turn on itself as their economy burns into the ground.

It is a measure of the volatility of the market. If it goes up, the market is predicted to be more volatile within the next while.
Because nobody buys stocks to lose money on unpredictability: >>60020535
So much cockiness in one post, America still owes so much money to China and people on /pol/ tend to shout ''happening'' while nothing of major impact is even happening.
My retarded friend that's obsessed with stockmarkets keeps yelling every year that the collapse of China's economy is going to happen soon and he's been yelling this for years.
And there is absolutely nothing positive about an economic collapse in China because i'm very very sure that it will drag the rest of the worlds economy down since every damn product comes from China.
It's structured off of futures or options I think. If you got big money you can actually buy it. If not there are leveraged VIX ETFs you can buy but I don't think there performance is that great.

Dr. Shekelstein of the IMF says the economy is literally perfect and to get in quick. Shekelstein could not be contacted for further comments.

Should I start gathering provisions and warning my loved ones /pol/? I've already done that a couple of times in 2015 but /pol/ was wrong then and I'm one step away from being called an end-of-the-world autist.
I'm living in the city btw but my grandpa is innawoods armed & dangerous, that's where I'll have my last stand
STOP THE THREAD.
Can we get an explanation of what this actual means, the implications etc..
and maybe someone can address the fact that the effect of Saudi/iran conflict doesn't appear to have had an impact
The Chinese stock market just collapsed, dragging the world down with it.
Price of oil is rising a bit because of the "conflict", which will turn out to be nothing.
Nothing relevant will come from the Middle East. If anything, its good, because our oil production will make up for the sandniggers fighting eachother.
Germany, Netherlands, and Euro market have all finally passed -4%
Could it lead (in the short term I mean) to a crisis ?
Or will the Fed or something else just print a shitload of currency and inject it into the markets ?
Sorry I don't know shit about economy
>Not knowing why China purchased that debt in the first placed
>Spoiler its to purchase a supply of dollars
>Not also knowing that the US could simply start inflating the dollar and fuck China over incredibly easily
>Fed raises interest rates
>Chinese/Japanese stock market crashes
Asian stock markets were a bubble propped up by money flowing into them from the Fed. A symptom of our trade imbalance. Raising interest rates pops the bubble.
Guess what? That's not the only bubble out there. Prepare for the worst
hehehehe, I am going to make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
ALL YOU GOY SHITS ARE GOING TO PANIC SELL.
The shit money managers that handle your laughable mutual funds are going to panic sell. The hedge funds that govern your pensions and retirement accounts are going to panic sell. The asset management companies that govern your state funds are going to panic.
I will exploit your fear and prosper. #CYAGOYIM
You silly goyim can't even demonstrate a united force. White Europeans are set to be a minority in their own countries.
We're going to have these threads again? Didn't you fags get BTFO last time?
This is oddly similar to October when all you armchair economists came out from every corner of your cesspool and claimed China was going to implode, thus causing the US to implode, thus causing WW3.
FUCK OFF ALREADY, YOU FUCKING AUTISTS.
Jews run hedge funds and are getting blown out. If you haven't figured it out yet, the world is going to blame ashkenazis for the distraught global economy. Bubby Yellen better have some serious tricks up her sleeve.
Right now it does but since they've brought hundreds of millions of people out of poverty, the wages have risen and prices in the cities where industry is located have increased. While we still do a lot of business in China, American businesses are starting to move to other countries in Asia to exploit cheaper labor. Rising wages for the Chinese is not good overall for their economy.
does any burger really believe on this?
God... is like:
Make Spain great again.
step 1.-Reconquer colognes.
it's bullshit. Come on USA. it's over and you know it
) Increase an already enormous military budget at the expense of domestic social programs
>2) Toppling of regimes resistant to our corporate interests
>3) Forcing democracy at the barrel of a gun in regions that have no history of the democratic process
>4) Replacing the UN’s role of preserving and extending international order
get mad, yurocuck
Wages should always match production. I think if China wants to keep exporting, they need to be able to compete with these other countries, who probably produce shit products.
China's doing well. I think this just represents their market reacting to the new US interest rate policy. There's always going to be panics and volatility as investors shift money around to adjust to the new policy
family owns lands since the 1870s
fed has wanted your land for years to turn into a wildlife reservoir (i.e. make money)
never sell to them regardless of their constant harassment by ATF and BLM (bureau of land management)
2001, routine bush fire on property
tell fire department beforehand, accidentally burn 100 acres of federal land, put it out yourselves
2006, lightning storm starts bush fire on your property
start backfire to push it away from your private property
cops show up next day and press charges , go to court
get tried and convicted, sentenced to a year in jail
go to prison for roughly one year
get let out, government says you've served your time
2011, feds want your land again, still won't sell
feds issue re-sentencing convicting you of domestic terrorism - now wants to enforce a mandatory minimum
minimum of 5 more years in federal prison
now a convicted terrorist - must serve 5 more years in federal prison
focus heavily on deer/elk hunting on your own property while in season - call it poaching - say lack of evidence is no reason not to plaster it in media
150 men and women occupy a completely empty government building that was closed for the winter - nobody hurt
liberals call them terrorists, make them look radical, don't look into what actually happened and compare to a hypothetical if they were muslim or black etc. yet ask why these people havent been droned/murdered by the feds
they appear ready to die
We need Trump ASAP
I have literally no idea. I don't have the picture in my folder at all. I have no clue where it even came from.
Also fuck you Italian, the south is inbred, I'm from the north.
They still need to hit their 10% growth targets to keep their one party rule mandate. They reinvested much in their infrastructure, but the quality is shit. Buildings are collapsing and will need to be rebuilt. Their 30 years of 10% growth is over, and I think it's going to drop back into itself as it always has. Too many people with too many internal policies. Uncle Xi is looking like Mao 2.0 with his culling of the party, the increased nationalism, arrest and silencing of dissenters. I do not have faith in China.
I can get one of my friends to get stuff for me, but what would you recommend for someone who's only experience with alcohol was some eggnog shit like a month ago?
I wanna start drinking vodka or whiskey, what are some good brands? I heard grey goose is good, and Jack Daniels is garbage
That wasn't b8 at all, I don't understand how you could even see it as b8. I'm 18, I took like 12 shots the other day of some eggnog mixed with whisky, rum, brandy, and something else, got drunk for the first time, told a bunch of friends I was killing myself.
Never had vodka or whiskey before, but want to
Yes, let me get a fake ID to buy liquor from a store run by one of the barely 5,000 people within a 20 miles radius of me.
Let me spend all that effort to get a fake ID in the state with the strictest alcohol laws in the country, and risk driving with alcohol in my car, because that will get me arrested, even being next to it.
All just to drink alone in my room.
Bad b8, I r8 2/8
Hang out at a chain liquor store early in a weekday, for instance I would buy you any shit you wanted for a 10% surcharge.
Buy rum if you like sweet stuff, vodka if yhou just wanna get blazed, whisky if you wanna be an elitist prick.
I went to yahoo's finance website
And they had an article on how difficult of a year it will be for Hillary
She is getting wrecked in the comments
There are no chain liquor stores in my state. There's 2 liquor stores within 20 miles of me. and I live in a rural area where everyone knows eachother.
How am I dumb as fuck? I took 11 shots of some liquor and was still standing perfectly fine. Its about eating foot that's high in fat. Plus, I don't plan on getting black out drunk, that's for degenerates. I'll just be drinking alone in my room
I was going to go to bed, but I figure I ought to just stay up to not miss opening bell. Looks like I'll be selling off today.
that alcoholism is a horrible way to die and this kid should probably never start. ill bite though and say just find a homeless guy and offer for him to keep the change or something. or find out which one of your friend's parents is "cool"
I come from a long family line of alcoholics, and have had the shit beaten out of me by a drunken dad for the entire first 8 or so years of my life.
Alcoholism and public drinking are for degenerates. Taking a few shots for the buzz, is not
>long line of alcoholics
addiction is in your blood. just stay clear of it
Having terrible taste in women and getting caught up in failing marriages that leave no alternative but alcoholism are in my blood.
Since I have no hope of ever getting so much as a girlfriend, I see no problem
When does 'Murica's stock open?
I can already hear the humid sound of brokers hitting the street.
From a skyscraper.
I thought it's indices
Yeah this, I bought FXP and YANG with magic luck last week,
You may as well just wait for the dead cat bounce to buy in
Yuengling is absolute shit. It tastes like piss but for whatever reason out of staters love it. The only decent Yuengling I've had was Black and Tan and that was barely passable.
This is coming from a PA bro.
Why is it literally everywhere here, then? Just because its muh oldest brewery? Where in PA are you? I'm up in NEPA, outside of Scranton
Is there any other beer from PA that isn't shit?
If american manufacturing numbers are bad too like many fear then things will get interesting fast. Those start coming out in about an hour.
>Official soundtrack if that happens
I'm like 20 minutes from the Brewery (no joke) and yes, literally the hard on is only because "muh oldest brewery" and the reason it's everywhere is because with it being local it's cheap as fuck. The hilarious part is that out of staters rave about it because once you leave PA it gets considered an import and they can be uppity hipsters about it.
Also, Jacob's Ghost should be available at your state stores. It's a subtype of Jim Beam.
Hey, NEPA bro. Where are you in it?
Like I said before, everyone I've ever spoken to loves Yuengling, and its literally everywhere. Every bar and liquor store here has Yuengling signs everywhere, and everyone is drinking it.
It can't be that bad, really
Northern California beer is where it's at. Lost Coast Russian River brews FTW. The beer is made far enough away from San Francisco that the risk of it turning you gay is minimal.
Wait, it's still an IGA and not a Boyer's O_o
And that's weird because around here all our alcohol is in state stores besides some pizza shops selling six packs and weis carrying beer.
sheeit, I've never met a Scrantonbro before. I'm over on Route 590, not far from Honesdale. I actually have to go into Dunmore later for a drug test, I've never been there.
Even though I live literally 30 minutes outside, I've never been to Scranton, but I've been up 84 into Dickson City once, a long time ago. Is it a nice city? I go for the carpenter's test in Lebanon tomorrow and if I pass, I'll be working for the union in Scranton.
I heard the west side has a drug problem or something?
Never heard of Boyer's. Only stores here are Weis, IGA, and Walmart.
The IGA near me has a license to sell alcohol, so it has a liquor store attached. The state store is a bit further in the opposite direction.
Will it make the houses dirt cheap again?
Nice. I'm thinking about moving out of the city. I moved back after being in the military and it's just a giant shithole. The city has a drug problem, but that's nothing new. Philly/NY dealers come to make money, because they can cop in the city and raise prices only two hours away. Heroin is and has always been the biggest problem. Generally this area is pretty family friendly, but it's just gotten so much darker since I was growing up. And the crime, blight comes with those darkies from the cities who come out here to move to the suburbs. Hope it goes well on your test. You have so much to look forward to in the city!
I've never actually been in the IGA store, so I don't know what they have. But the state store is across from the Weis I used to work at. I'll see if my old buddies can get me something I guess.
I'm from Staten Island and NJ, so I guess its a massive step up. Is the drug problem that visible, or is it only visible if you really get involved in the city?
Can you carry knives/open/CCW carry there? How are the cops? Out there I go 85 in a 45 all the time and they usually fly by going faster.
Fuck! I'm afraid this shithole will go back to the early 2000's when we exported food while our people starved to death.
The dollar already worth 4 BR reais. Meat, bread and flour skyrocketed last year... I'm scarred, /pol/.
Gentlemen ...your bets: Where will it stop for today?
