china fdi

Chinese corporations and investors have been hunting overseas for bigger profits, and they're finding them in the United States.

In just the first six months of 2015, Chinese companies poured a massive $6.4 billion into U.S. investments - a record half-year high.

Today I'll show you why this cash flow will continue, and the best way you can make money from it now...

China Just Made the GUTSIEST Move of the Entire Financial Crisis

11 2 15 china kfg mm

China's grave dancers have taken great pleasure in convincing millions of investors that the nation will never succeed based on any number of erroneous arguments...

...not democratic

...not capitalist

...not worthy of world leadership

Underneath it all, this was little more than thinly veiled contempt for Beijing's 35-year-old "one child" policy. Called yousheng, the law has averted an estimated 400 million births over the years in the name of modernization and efficient resource consumption.

Now that law's been scrapped, and couples will be allowed to have two children.

The White House and much of the mainstream media wasted no time posturing after the announcement. Press Secretary Josh Earnest, for example, noted that the policy is a "positive step," but that "we also look forward to the day when birth limits are abandoned altogether." Amnesty International said bluntly that the policy change was "not enough."

They're missing the point.

China's policy reversal is the gutsiest move yet in the ongoing global financial crisis. It's a game changer of the highest magnitude. Moreover, it's great news for savvy investors.

Today we're going to talk about why and, of course, how to align your money for maximum profits...

Here's how to align your money for maximum profits.

AAPL, VRX, and China Top This Week's 10 Most Shocking Numbers


Here are this week's need-to-know facts about the stock market, economy, Wall Street, and life-changing global events...

It's the numbers that count in this crazy world. They can tell stories that words sometimes can't.

AAPL, VRX, and China contributed three out of the 10 numbers that shocked investors most this week. Here's a look at some of the fascinating, infuriating, amusing, depressing, and altogether important figures that the world has put up on the board recently - and why you need to know them...

America Is About to Import a Global Debt Crisis

keyword: global debt crisis

A global debt crisis is coming. The warning signs have been emerging for months.

"This market instability is not going away. It's been building for six years. It can only end one way - with a 'Super Crash,'" Money Morning Global Credit Strategist Michael E. Lewitt told readers back on Sept. 8. "It's not just China that's creating this next (much worse) sell-off. It's also the massive, $200 trillion global debt bubble that's driving the world economy to its knees."

Now, it seems, major media outlets are finally catching on...

This week, an award-winning investigative journalist for Salon wrote a well-researched piece that concluded "trillions of dollars of investment in emerging markets has been fueled by cheap credit - and the bill's coming due"...

As Another Sector's Sails Lose Wind, Watch This One Barometer


One by one, the bubbles are bursting...

First it was the commodities bubble that blew up in mid-2014, which caused the collapse of energy and commodity stocks -they are now down between 40-80%.

It also caused the end of the corporate credit bubble in high yield bonds and bank loans over the second half of 2014 and into this year.

Then the Chinese stock market, which had gone parabolic early this year, collapsed, sending global markets into a tailspin this summer.

China Stocks: Investment Strategies to Declaw the Dragon

Will China Lower Interest Rates?

The recent meltdown in China’s stock market has caused shockwaves that have been felt throughout the global markets. It’s the first time investors have seen this, so there’s no precedent that helps them understand what’s happening… or to know how to respond.

Until now.

China's Shanghai Composite Drops Again Today Ahead of 3-Day Holiday

China’s stock market

China's Shanghai Composite lost 11.75% in August, wiping out some 150% of gains logged over the last 12 months.

Investors all over the world are growing increasingly concerned - and they should be.

Here's why...

Fed Opacity is Suffocating the Markets

US Fed reserve

Market observers continue to give short shrift to the fact that the Federal Reserve is the perpetrator of the "Red Wedding" in the markets. The Federal Reserve doesn't trust the markets. It thinks it knows better than the markets how to set the price of capital and create the conditions for economic growth.

Every once in a while, we get an errant number like the revised second quarter GDP number of +3.7% to tease us into thinking that they know what they are doing. But once we look below the headline number, we find the same weakness that has plagued the economy since the financial crisis. Years of ZIRP and QE have suffocated the economy in too much debt that will continue to smother growth for years to come.

The Fed continues to speak out of both sides of its mouth, when its best course of action would be to say nothing. On Wednesday, New York Fed President Bill Dudley sought to calm markets by saying that the case for a September rate increase was "less compelling." On Friday, Fed Vice Chair Stanley Fischer said that a September hike was still a possibility.

The Economic "Red Wedding" Begins

DJIA futures

I love being right...Does that make me a bad person?

I have been warning for months that the market is overvalued, that the global economy is sick, and that stocks are headed for a fall. While CNBC and the rest of the clueless bulls break out the arm-bands, readers at Money Morning - who have been paying attention - should not have been surprised by what happened last week.

The collapse in commodity prices that began a year ago was a raging canary in the coal mine, screaming that something was wrong in the global economy. And that was the faltering of Chinese growth, which all along had been built on a fragile foundation of debt.

But these numbers don't convey the hard, cold reality of the losses. Let's put some meat on the bones.

Currency Wars: China Now Has Unprecedented Control Over the U.S. Dollar


China fired a shot heard 'round the world Aug. 11, stoking fears of what could become the ugliest of all currency wars. In a surprise move, the country massively devalued the yuan 2% - its biggest one-day devaluation in 20 years.

China's yuan devaluation will have more than just that immediate impact - it gives the country unprecedented, long-term control over the U.S. dollar.

Here's how China has managed to place the U.S. dollar on puppet strings...

[WARNING] China, Russia Create Own Gold Market to Take Down U.S. Dollar


China and Russia have finally had enough of Western central bankers' clandestine gold market manipulation to prop up the U.S. dollar.

F. William Engdahl, an American-German economic researcher and best-selling geopolitical author, was quoted by business blog Sputnik on Aug. 16. He said that Russia, China, and other emerging economies are involved in & the genial move & to establish an entirely different gold market.

& They stand to add to the new energy surrounding a renaissance in gold as a support of solid, well-based currencies to replace the diluted and devalued dollar system...&

How China's Currency Move Changes the Investing Landscape

China’s currency

The markets got carried out feet first this morning in early trading that saw the Dow plunge more than 230 points, the S&P 500 shed more than 25 points, and the Nasdaq crater a massive 90 points. Then, as logic and common sense prevailed, the major averages fought their way back in one of the most gut-wrenching days in a long time.

Still, there are a lot of jangled nerves out there, and China is being pilloried for its actions - which is exactly why I wanted to reach out to you today with an explanation of what's really driving this, and how to capitalize on the situation.

China's currency move was absolutely brilliant for two reasons...

Play China's $67 Trillion Surge with This Stock

China Investments

Before this month's crash, Chinese markets doubled over seven months to peak at 5,166 in mid-June.

On the way up, anecdotes abounded of farmers abandoning their fields in favor of trading stocks on margin. By late June, there were more individual investors in China than the 87.8 million card-carrying members of the Communist Party of China.

And one U.S. company has become the top choice to profit from this shift...
