The release this week of second-quarter economic figures revealed that China’s economy is growing at its slowest pace in 27 years.
China’s stockmarket has taken a battering, and the panic is starting to spread across the globe. But it’s only a matter of time before central banks step in, says John Stepek.
China’s move to a new currency regime, effectively devaluing the yuan by almost 2% in a day.
The renminbi has dropped and markets are jittery – but a great long-term buying opportunity for Chinese equities lies ahead, says Rupert Foster.
Investors have plenty of reasons to be cautious at the moment, says John Stepek. But when it comes to Chinese stocks, the signs are more promising.
If another recession comes our way with interest rates at current levels, central bankers will have to get really radical, says John Stepek.
China’s currency, the yuan renminbi, has seen its biggest fall since the current currency regime was introduced two decades ago.
The devaluation of the renminbi could mean more countries joining the ‘race to the bottom’. John Stepek looks at what’s behind the yuan’s fall, and what it means for investors.
Last Monday, the stockmarket in China fell by 8.5%, its worst day since early 2007, and second-worst percentage drop ever.
From oil to Chinese stocks, panic is spreading through the markets, says Merryn Somerset Webb.
Chinese stockmarkets have seen huge losses recently. So are they on the verge of collapse? Or could we be at the start of a long bull market? John Stepek investigates.
