Trading Asian Stocks

http://profitabletradingtips.com/profitable-trading-tips/trading-asian-stocks

For those trading Asian stocks the New Year looks like markets will be volatile. China is attempting to adjust its largely state run economy downward to a soft landing, with middling success. Japan has succeeded in increasing exports on the back of a weaker Yen. Thailand is in the grip of social unrest. And the game console maker, Nintendo, admitted to losing money in 2013! Asian stocks fell across the board recently as Chinese factory output dropped in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Why Are You Trading Asian Stocks?

The rationale for trading Asian stocks over the years has been that Asia has been the center of global economic growth. Traders betting on gains have commonly been rewarded. Large Asian companies trade as American Depository Receipts. As such traders can apply technical analysis of the American versions of these stocks. After the market crash of 2008 Asia, specifically China, was leading the way out of the recession. But it appears that all is not well in the state controlled economy of mainland China. Construction of frequently vacant buildings continues. The leading lender in China, Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd., saw its shares fall by two percent in Hong Kong recently. Industrial production is down. Attempts to stimulate consumer spending to support continued Chinese growth has been a failure. And, as economic growth in China slows so does trade with its immediate neighbors. Trading Asian stocks in the next year, or even longer, may be a matter of shorting these equities as prices fall! The exception, perhaps, will be Japan.

Social Unrest

Thailand is in the news as protesters attempt to unseat the elected government. Russia is concerned about terrorist attacks at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games. And China continues to balance a heavy hand in governing with promises of economic success while a real estate bubble still threatens. Social unrest too often leads to economic chaos. To the extent that things truly fall apart across the Pacific, traders will be wise to hedge their risk by trading options or trading futures options on Asian stock ADRs.
