Do you mean pork? Because the sale looks like a way to make nice little profit for those involved.
Nah, I don't mean that sort of pork. Neither do I mean the PIIGS (although, if the rumors are true, the Chinese have been releasing some of that recently).
Can you shed some light on the rumors?
Well, tbh, there's nothing specific, just random speculation that they been selling the more toxic periphs recently.
I guess as a speculative "short".
I asked because my first impression was you were hinting at the Chinese liquidating a strategic long position in PIIGS, similar to pork.
I did mean that.
So the CHINESE are hoarding all the bacon!
We might have to ask a local expert regarding what kind of pigs the Chinese are hoarding. These could be skinny (A.K.A. lean hogs - not so much bacon when there is little fat) or these could be overweight (A.K.A. bloated swines - for "salo").
Yes, in a secret bunker deep underground.
