Mohamed El-Erian Says Keep A Close Eye on Chinese Stocks

Mohamed A. El-Erian | Facebook: "Lots of people will (and should) be keeping a close eye on Chinese stocks this week, starting with the government. In partnership with brokerage firms, the authorities opted for a big bang package over the weekend to stabilize what had been a volatile and rapidly correcting market (chart below from cnbc.com). This intervention reflects concerns about the risk of an adverse economic and social fallout. It did not take long for markets on Monday to test the robustness of the measures. The same is happening at the start of Tuesday’s session. Failure to contain volatility could lead to another leg down in stocks."
