Hi! David makes good points. Another point is that China’s equity market is not as transparent as equity markets in the US and many other countries. China’s market is also not as mature and sophisticated, so it can be subjected to wild swings and shifts regardless of commodity prices. Profits can be made, but when you invest in the Chinese equity market you sign on for a high degree of risk. Best wishes to you and thanks for writing!
China's not a sinking ship, it is just growing slower than it has in the past and requiring fewer resources, commodities, to do it. It's growing at 7% instead of 9%. Their market corrected from very elevated levels to reflect the general high prices of the stocks and the slower growth.
China's GDP is 2nd to the US, but its stock market is relatively small, so it has a big effect on commodity prices but not necessarily stock market prices.
