The China Stock Market: US Trade War Breakdown and Top Chinese Stocks


The continued rise of China was supposed to be one of the largest stories of the early 21st century — a rising middle class, double digit GDP growth, and a soaring tech scene…everything seemed to be coming together to create an amazing opportunity for growth.

Fast forward a few years and things have slowed down. The main Chinese stock market index is down over 40% over the past five years and even name-brand Chinese tech companies have taken a hit:

– Tencent is down over 30% from all-time highs
– Alibaba is down over 15% from all-time highs
– Baidu is down over 60% from all-time highs

The macro picture in China seems to have shifted, and the trade war with the U.S. has tangled an already complicated story, leaving investors to wonder: “What the heck is going on in China?”

In this video, we explain how the trade war and tariffs might impact Chinese companies and which Chinese stocks we like best.

    I invested in Tesla back in 2013, I was very much a bear. My reasoning was simple: Tesla was trying to do what no American automaker had done so far: Develop and sell a mass-market electric vehicle. It was trying to do what no American company had done in nearly a century: Start up a successful new auto manufacturing business. To take it a step further, I bought 40 shares from Tesla miners, investing about $1,800 in total with part of the proceeds from a 401(k) rollover. At the $908 per share price I sold at, that's a realized profit of almost $35,000! It's may not be life-changing money, but it's an incredible return nonetheless ,Now i am working with 3 asset Gold silver and crypto all are good , but Crypto Investment is the mother of them all , Crypto has followed this pattern for sometime now; It dips and gets everyone scared then after retesting an old resistance several times, we wake up one day to see it is bullish. This period is the perfect time to buy the dip and accumulate irrespective of the bulls being under pressure. Bitcoin moving up is inevitable and would see the price of bitcoin surpass it's all-time highs. The reversal was imminent because obviously, the bitcoin market needed a correction to gather the right momentum to give the bulls more steam and this just makes it the perfect time to invest and accumulate as much as possible. I'd strongly advise any newbie/traders to buy the dip for traders who are still wondering whether to enter the market or old time traders who are Holders to seek help from not just any trader but an established trading expert with at least 89% trade accuracy. I underwent a series of trading losses I'd best not talk about before I was introduced to trading analyst Mr Edgar Jenkin. My contact with him has been the Hallmark of this year for me, under his careful guide and his signal service I've been able to recover my losses and even grow my trading portfolio massively from 1.2 btc to 4.6 btc in just 5 weeks. I will advise traders esp newbies to have an orientation of trading before they get involved in it. Mr Edgar makes you learn daily while you make profit with his signals. He can be contacted ᴠɪᴀ whatsapp +447868802132 ᴏʀ ᴛᴇʟᴇɢʀᴀᴍ @EdgarJenkin for inquiries into profitable trading strategy…

    I blew my account multiple times trying to trade alone, the losses I incurred made me believe trading was actually a dead end not until I made 7 times on my trading capital in 3 weeks and with the market making large moves and the support and mentoring I got from Mr. Michael, a renowned financial analyst and trader. He made me learn to read and understand the language of price action rather than relying on lagging indicators with vivid explanations on a learner-friendly platform. So my advice, fine a mentor and also, try incorporating the use of oscillator, Bollinger and pivot points into your strategy, also move to higher TFs (4h or 1D preferably) Thank me later. I highly recommend him, the brain behind my success. Pursuing trades with him has put me on the path of greatness. Feel free to contact him if you've got a hard time getting hang of it on MICHAELFRANSWAY@gmail, I'm pretty certain he'll get in touch. I hope someone use this info too mitigate risk.

    Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It’s for this reason I invented Ruvol where every game is always challenging and exciting to play.


    Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. I purposely invented Ruvol to give chess a direct “apple-to-apple” competition.

    Like chess, Ruvol is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but containing more number of squares than chess. Like chess, it has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of piece moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line.

    But there’s one biggest advantage Ruvol has over chess that makes Ruvol a very challenging game to play. What is this? Unlike chess, the Ruvol pieces are randomly placed at the start of every game which makes it impossible for any clever player to memorize the moves. Fischer Random Chess, also known as Chess960, likewise introduced a random set up, but with many exceptions. Ruvol is 100% random.

    At present, there is no other board game in the world within the same category of chess “where chess players can switch to.” Chess is totally a monopoly in its class. With the coming of Ruvol, chess has finally found its match!


    In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M.


    For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, I find it “wiser” to simply sell my copyright.

    If you’re interested to buy my copyright, email me your BEST PRICE OFFER—[the copyright goes to the most reasonable bid]. My email address is: [Or perhaps you can help me find a buyer, and I’ll reward you with a commission.]

    Thanks and God bless!

    Repression conducted under the guise of “anti-separatism” or “counter-terrorism” remained particularly severe in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang) and Tibetan-populated areas (Tibet). Authorities subjected Uighurs, Kazakhs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups in Xinjiang to intrusive surveillance, arbitrary detention and forced indoctrination.

    LGBTI people faced widespread discrimination and stigma in society. Due to inadequate medical services, they took serious risks by seeking unregulated and improper gender-affirming treatments. LGBTI people also faced abuses in the form of "conversion therapy”.

    Oh let me guess revoking one child policy is enough…

    Boycott China or be part and parcel

    China’s government sees human rights as an existential threat. Its reaction could pose an existential threat to the rights of people worldwide.
    More than any other government, Beijing has made technology central to its repression. A nightmarish system has already been built in Xinjiang, the northwestern region that is home both to some 13 million Muslims—Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Turkic minorities—and to the most intrusive public monitoring system the world has ever known. The Chinese Communist Party has long sought to monitor people for any sign of dissent, but the combination of growing economic means and technical capacity has led to an unprecedented regime of mass surveillance.
    Japan does the same. Blanket surveillance for all muslims.
    This is far away from the Geneva Convention.
    Boycott china today

    American steel vs Chinese steel , just because a knife is made in the USA doesn't mean it's made from American steel, the best steel in the world. Example, my 50 Cal will fire thru a half inch steel plate made from Chinese steel, it will not fire thru the same size plate made from American steel. American steel has been shut down by the global government for a reason, it is to make America defenceless against Invaders. American weapons manufactured from nonAmerican steel are of poor quality, tanks for example.

    China grew based on their own efforts enhanced by forced transfer technology, IP theft, being given a 3rd world status at the World Trade Center (even today as the second biggest economy) and by not following any rules. So yes is impressive what they have been able to get away!!!!!

    I think it would help if, as an intro, the host would introduce the analysts and state (or have them state) why they're on the show. Being an "analyst" doesn't mean you know anything about Chinese stocks. Their knowledge emerged gradually through the video, but I think it's a good idea to present this information up front. Why should we think they know anything?
