China Stocks are Ready to Move

China Stocks are Ready to Move

2022-06-01 • Updated

China’s stock market performed well last week amid weakening lockdown measures. Traders are becoming bullish and greedy. Should we follow the crowd and buy HK50? This article will help you break it down.

Chinese stocks feel weak

The iShares MSCI China (MCHI) index plunged year-to-date compared with the US stock market (US500 or S&P500). It had lost 25% over the last 12 months, and the US500 is only 2% down.


You need to know that the divergence between these indices is not a miracle or a random fluctuation. The US Federal Reserve printed trillions of dollars and injected them into the stock market. At the same time, China had many difficulties, starting from the Evergrande crash. One of the most prominent developers with over $340 billion worth of assets has been on the brink of collapse. Step by step, China saved the day, and Evergrande is still alive.

However, Covid-19 stroked again, putting the Chinese government in a precarious position. The “zero covid-19” policy made the country lock down its citizens, crashing the supply chains and shrinking production. The damage from those policies is in the billions of dollars. As for the start of Summer 2022, lockdowns are easing, and China is getting back to business. Is it the end of bad times?

There is a chance for HK50

A lot of the negatives are priced into share prices. Also, investors are paying insufficient attention to the potential of improving the Covid-19 situation and medium-to-long-term earnings growth prospects. The MSCI China Index is trading with low multiplicators. It signals about potential underestimation of the Chinese stock market.

Moreover, inflation in China is at the bottom (it’s near an all-time low).


Once China gets rid of lockdowns and starts producing as much good as it did several years before, the HK50 is likely to soar with immense speed.

It will be a long way for HK50, but the expectations are worth them. On a macro scale, the index is near its 7-year low. Also, a bullish divergence occurred on the monthly chart. The consolidation may last for months or even a year, but we expect HK50 to skyrocket.

We see that HK50 is trying to move closer to the resistance trendline on the daily chart. As soon as the breakout happens, the uptrend will officially start.

Earnings season is a crucial time for investors and analysts, as it provides insights into how well companies have performed over the past quarter and gives indications of their future earnings. In 2023, expectations for US Q1 earnings were low due to economic challenges and rising interest rates. Surprisingly, many companies beat these low expectations, with 75% of S&P 500 companies surpassing forecasts.
