China

Donald Trump is right about one thing: China is killing the U.S. on trade.

Here's a detailed look at the massive imbalance and its origin...

Kyle Bass: Beware China's $34 Trillion Meltdown

Kyle Bass

Yesterday, Kyle Bass - the hedge fund manager who predicted the 2008 mortgage crisis - released a letter cautioning investors about China's impending implosion.

He revealed how his warnings are largely being ignored by China market experts and Wall Street aficionados alike.

Prisoner shackle with word "debt" on the iron ball, concept of escaping debt and dependency on credit. Isolated on white background.

Stocks actually rose last week, although you'd be hard-pressed to find an investor or hedge fund manager who is feeling good about things right now.

But the Dow Jones Industrial Average did in fact gain 105 points or 0.7% to close at 16,093.53 while the S&P 500 rose by 1.4% or 27 points to 1906.90. The Nasdaq Composite Index, home of the FANGS, added 2.3% to close at 4591.18. But as the title of the novel goes, it's "been down so long it looks like up to me."

All three markets are still down sharply on the year and many hedge funds are nursing double digit losses just three weeks into the year.

Observers of the confession think it seemed coerced. Have a look at what the detainee had to say for himself...

The Truth About China and the First Trades of 2016

China

Markets have opened the new year with a resounding thud! Pundits are attributing this to trouble coming out of China, whose currency is again being devalued by the authorities. That's not quite true.

The truth is, China is just a symptom of a larger problem, one I've been talking about nonstop, and we're starting to feel the full-blown disease.

Sooner or later markets get religion and sins get punished. That time is now. That means investors should get religion before they end up meeting the devil in person.
