Signs Indicate China Falling Apart Faster Than Most Thought; Emerging Market Report by Profit Confidential

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2012

The Chinese economy appears to be falling apart fast, according to Michael Lombardi, lead contributor to Profit Confidential. While gross domestic product (GDP) growth figures released by the Peoples Bank of China about the Chinese economy are indicating a slowdown, Lombardi believes there are other indicators that are flashing bright red contraction signals.

In the article, Chinese Economy Contracting Much Quicker Than Originally Thought, Lombardi looks at several specific parts of the economy, like electricity consumption.

When the Chinese economy was expanding at a stronger clip, year-over-year growth in electricity consumption ranged from 10% to 11%, says Lombardi. For March, electricity consumption grew just 0.7%.

Lombardi also looks at the fact that rail cargo volumes in the Chinese economy are growing at half the rate they were last year, while sales of bulldozers are off over 50% in March when compared to last year.

Loan growth is critical to any economy, because it measures how much new investment and consumption is being generated, says Lombardi. In April 2012, loan growth fell 8.2% from last year.

In April, exports were expected to rise 8.5%, but Lombardi says that exports actually rose only 4.9%.

The leaders in China are clearly worried about the direction of the Chinese economy, says Lombardi. The reserve requirement ratiowhich is equivalent to lowering interest rateswas lowered for the third time since November last week.

Profit Confidential, which has been published for over a decade now, has been widely recognized as predicting five major economic events over the past 10 years. In 2002, Profit Confidential started advising its readers to buy gold-related investments when gold traded under $ 300 an ounce. In 2006, it begged its readers to get out of the housing market… before it plunged.

Profit Confidential was among the first (back in late 2006) to predict that the U.S. economy would be in a recession by late 2007. The daily e-letter correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009. And Profit Confidential turned bullish on stocks in March of 2009 and rode the bear market rally from a Dow Jones Industrial Average of 6,440 on March 9, 2009, to 12,876 on May 2, 2011, a gain of 99%.
