Credit Bubble Bulletin

Global equities markets showed notably strong correlations during the recent selloff. Few markets, however, monitored U.S. Chinese shares. From your Bubble evaluation perspective, restricted market correlations provide confirmation of the global Bubble thesis. It’s also not surprising that Chinese marketplaces were keenly sensitive to the abrupt drop in U.S. The U.S. and China are dual linchpins to increasingly vulnerable global Bubble Dynamics.

Moreover, intensifying fragilities in Chinese Credit – and financing more generally – ensure China is keenly delicate to any indicator of a faltering U.S. February 21 – Bloomberg: “China halted updating its homegrown version of the VIX Index, week taking another step to discourage speculation in equity-linked options after regulators tightened trading limitations last.

State-run China Securities Index Co. didn’t publish a value for the SSE 50 ETF Volatility Index on its website Thursday. A worker who solved CSI’s inquiry line said the ongoing company ended updating the measure to work on an update. Derivatives rule the global world. Of course, Chinese authorities had few problems with booming trading options when markets were posting gains.

Here in the U.S., regulators will supposedly now keep a more watchful vision on VIX-related products. In China, “the VIX goes dark,” as regulators place various restrictions on trading options. It’s not yet determined if you ask me why international traders at this time would be attracted to Chinese marketplaces. As Bubble fragilities turn more acute, Chinese officials will suppose an more heavy-handed approach even. 2 billion to buy NY City’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel three years ago, the offer seemed to define an era for China Inc. President Xi Jinping quickly afterward slipped directly into stay at the Park Avenue landmark. China’s business priorities have since changed, turning real-estate trophies into symbols of risk.

Regulators in Beijing on Friday said they seized control of Anbang to keep the privately held insurance provider from collapsing, while prosecutors in Shanghai said they indicted Wu Xiaohui, Anbang’s swashbuckling ex-chairman, for alleged deceptive abuse and fundraising of power. China’s government makes no secret of its penchant to steer commerce, even with private companies, however the boardroom takeover still rattled analysts used to Beijing’s applying its influence more quietly. ‘This is an unprecedented step, putting into receivership a Chinese company in that public direct way,’ said Scott Kennedy at the… Middle for International and Strategic Studies.

Wu Xiaohui, Anbang’s previous chairman, vanished (was detained) earlier this June. Married to the granddaughter of Deng Xiaoping, Wu for a long time operated as though covered by the Chinese establishment. 300 billion, largely financed through high-yield prosperity management/”shadow” deposits. Anbang’s ownership structure was opaque, which didn’t matter so long as Wu was in good graces with Beijing. How the world changes quickly.

Wu has been charged with fraud and embezzlement – “illegal business operations which may seriously endanger the company’s solvency”. It could appear the overall game of freewheeling – and well-connected – billionaire Chinese dealmakers tapping the shadow “money” spigot to buy valued international real estate resources has come to a finish. The immediate impact on global trophy property ideals is unclear. The federal government takeover and charges against Wu send a solid message to the Chinese business community certainly. Beijing is exerting control and pursuing President Xi’s priority to rein in financial risks.

February 23 – Bloomberg Gadfly (Nisha Gopalan): “Beijing’s interventions in the economy don’t always merit applause, but the government’s unprecedented seizure of Anbang Insurance Group Co. deserves a circular. Anbang was a poisonous threat to China’s economic climate after a debt-fueled global acquisition spree — including trophy assets such as New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel — that was funded by the sale of high-yield insurance policies. Those risky products propelled the business from obscurity in to the rates of the country’s biggest insurance providers in the area of a couple of years.
