Asian Markets' Closing Prices

Tuesday, February 27, 2007 | 06:49 AM

China's main stock market is under pressure this morning; We should expect some spillover across Asian Markets, Europe and the US.

The WSJ observed:

"Shanghai's benchmark stock index plunged nearly 9% on Tuesday, its biggest drop in more than 10 years, as investors unloaded shares to lock in profits after recent gains. Asian-Pacific markets ended mostly lower.

The Shanghai Composite Index tumbled 8.8% to close at 2771.79, its biggest single-day decline since it fell 9.4% on Feb. 18, 1997, just after the death of Communist Party elder Deng Xiaoping. The Shanghai index had gained 1.4% on Monday to 3040.60, extending a spate of record high closes."

Here are the closing prices throughout most of Asia and the Pacific Rim:

Australia 5977.60-44.30-0.74%
Hong Kong 20147.87-360.08-1.76%

Greenspan speaks in Hong Kong and the Chinese stock market drops 10% the next day.

Coincidence? I think not!

I'm sure in his speech, aside from warning about a U.S. recession, he advised Chinese investors to buy Chinese stocks on margin.

Also worth noting: the degree to which Chinese stock analysts have borrowed from their U.S. brethren in offering fatuous explanations for market drops.

"It was due to pressure from profit taking," said Weng Chen (not the real name)
