What Is the Chinese Stock Market Called?
When you think of the Chinese Economy, you should think of Hang Seng Index. Named after the largest bank which is also one of Hong Kong's largest listed companies founded in 1993.
The name Hang Seng actually means “ever-growing” which is incredibly fitting because that is what banks, and YOUR investments should do...right?
This index is a free floating adjusted market capitalization-weighted stock-market index in China (try say that mouthful 10 times fast).
Hang Seng is located in Hong Kong which is a major city in Asia for economic activity. Hong Kong means "fragrant harbor" probably because it has always been a hotbed for worldly trade.
The Hang Seng is used to record and monitor daily changes of the largest companies of the Hong Kong market and is look at as the main indicator of the overall market performance in China.

Facts you should know about China before investing in their economy:
- China is a socialist country and thus has a socialist economic system controlled by the People's Republic of China. The system is based on the predominance of public ownership and state-owned enterprises within the market economy.
- The Chinese military is expanding, especially its naval forces in the south sea, and escalating geopolitical tensions in the area. How will this affect the stock market? That is yet to be seen. No country wants war, but it does appear that the military buildup has caught the attention of the US and other nations.
- China is a major exporter. Their top exports are broadcasting equipment , computers like ($AAPL devices), office machine parts (like Xerox). Semiconductors (hello $AMD) and telephones (mostly cell phones). Also furniture, lighting, and miscellaneous plastics and plastic items.
The coronavirus outbreak has caused the Hang Seng to drop its biggest drop in 4 years as of February 2020. This is something that is still developing and the actual economic affects are unknown. What is known is the Chinese economy has been slowing and the outbreak is not helping things as consumers spend less during these times. As of late February there are over 100 million Chinese factory workers who have not returned to work.
News both positive and negative affects the stock market. What happens in China can have rippling affects around the globe which we have seen since the Coronavirus. Check out our full stock indices list. Read More
How to Prepare When Investing
A lot of people wonder what this virus is going to do to their 401K's and the stock market long term. There are several things that people can do. The first thing is that if you ever feel like the stock market is too risky for you to stomach then you could always put your 401k or investments into safe funds for a temporary period of time.
If you go into safe funds there is always the chance that the stock market could continue up, however, you would also not be susceptible to huge market drops like what happened in February.
The huge drops that happened were not that surprising because it was foreshadowed in the stock charts. Obviously, no one could predict that a virus would take down the markets, however, they were due for something major to happen because price action was way overextended and was due for a pullback.
How to Read HSI Charts
A great way to be prepared and not get caught off guard with the Hang Seng Index and what it's going to do is to learn how to read the charts. Stock chart reading isn't just for professionals. In fact, many financial advisers don't even know how to read stock charts. They put your information into a computer and base your retirement off of your current risk tolerance and how much money that you want to have at retirement.
The problem with many financial advisers not knowing charts is that many of their clients end up being in risky funds when huge market corrections like 2000, 2008, and now 2020 happen. The huge drops that happened weren't all that surprising for those that knew how to read candlestick patterns.
The stock market was very overextended going into 2020 and was due for a major correction, we just didn't know that the Coronavirus would be the catalyst to create it. Price action was way overbought so it needed to come back down.
What Now for the Hang Seng Index?
Well, if you're bullish on the HSI then you want to see the buyers start coming in and get price action above the weekly 50 sma and 200 sma. There's a lot of moving average resistance levels above now after the huge sell off. To keep the bull market going, you want to see price get back above the 9 ema again. That's going to take a lot to happen.
If price action stays below the moving average lines then the bear market may be here and we may be in for a rough period of time. Don't fall for the hype of advisers saying don't worry the market will go back up again. It may, but the charts have to reflect this. It's not that hard to learn how to read stock charts if you put the effort in to learn them. We will teach you this in our community.
Learning stock charts will give you the education that you need to protect your investments long term and also an edge on how to capitalize and make money in the HSI or any market near term. There are several different trading strategies that you can learn that will make you money whether the market is up, down, or trades sideways.
Options trading is one of the most popular ways to capitalize on the $HSI. You can trade ETF's when this index is falling. Some popular strategies are buying naked puts, which is the most profitable but also the most risky strategy. One of the most popular and safest strategies is to buy call credit spreads as this index is falling. Once the reversal takes place then you might look into naked call options or safer strategies such as put credit spreads.
