    hello ,guys ,im a chinese commodity trader,i found the globle fanancial markets have more and more relation in recent years.
    when i was trading ,you guys were sleeping ,so do you .

  2. The SP500 index follows the Shanghai index change about 46 % (1098 out of 2381 daily data elements) of the time.

    I am comparing about 9 years daily adjusted closing index values for GSPC (Standard And Poors 500 index) and Shanghai SSE composite index.
  3. Isn't it the other way around? I always thought that Asia followed the U.S. markets.
  4. This is what I am doing:

    If the Shanghai SSE index adjusted closing value 23 June 2009 > Shanghai SSE index adjusted closing value 22 June 2009

    then is the SP500 index adjusted closing value 24 June 2009 > SP500 index adjusted closing value 23 June 2009 ?

    It is not enough just to observe a greater opening value. The rally must continue long enough to make a profit. That's why I stagger the dates.
  5. say, is demand for copper in China growing?

    i bought some august at-the-money puts on freeport-mcmoran (for no particular reason - just too much coffee in the morning). FCX is affected by global copper demand, and china is a huge consumer

    i mean any actual signs of increasing copper demand? some real-life evidence, maybe? i don't trust wall street analysts
