I think this is a little more than a fluctuation.
8.X % is quite a bit.

do dead cats really bounce?

China suffered a $4 trillion dollar crash a few weeks ago, the government brought in emergency measures (including banning 1400+ companies from trading stock) and it weathered the storm last week.

But today that apparent calm seems to have eroded, the governments measures aren't working today.

well it could be more...they (the talking heads on CNBC) have been talking about china dropping quite a bit in the next few months....the US is the 800 pd. gorilla that I'm worried about...I don't know what you think, but if the FED is scarred s**tless about a 25 basis point rise in rates, our own economy is pretty damn fragile itself...just think, it would take 8 of those just to get back to a "half-way normal" 2 percent FED rate

China is makeing the same mistakes the USA made back in 1929 and have been for awhile.
Economic growth was going faster than its socity could handle.

It's also important to remember that about 141 companies have had their shares frozen, so they can't drop. So this drop is artificially made to appear less severe than it really is.

I wonder if this is irreversible?

It seems that the list of corporations-1400(?)141? are blocked from trading. Also assuming that a high portion of them are foreign based, why would anyone outside China remain in a market that forces them to eat continued losses and let the locals off with lesser losses?

I wouldn't. I'd bail as soon as I could.

If I'm outside those 1400/141, I'd be selling, perhaps slowly, but selling none the less.

Any further actions by the gov't and it's looks like they'll have no choice if this continues and I wonder how they re-establish credibility???

Good thing they have all those gold bars so they can pay their margin call.

Really? What's your solution to the 'mistake' of 'growing too fast'?

At least China has the power to arbitrarily change the rules.

$3 trillion and counting so far. That's a lot of gold, how much gold do you think they actually have?

Hint, it's about $80 billion maybe.

It is more related to buying or margin which was the same issue as 1929.

China's investor class numbers over 300 million so when a number of people larger than the United State's population purchases stock on spec it leads to serious issues when there is any type of correction.

One way is to make sure labor rights keep up and wealth inequality is low.

A country that economy is growing so fast and influential on the world cant sustain a situation were one segment is living like kings and another on the equivalent of a few dollers a day in practically slave labor.

Eventually it catches up and the economy stalls. Especially when a big segment is based around manufacturing as there is only so much you can sell before the market becomes saturated.

The solution is a varied and diverse economy that provides opportunitys.

Well uncontrolled margin buying is what turns a problem into a global catastrophe.

A economy stall and when the margins are called in it all goes to pot.
