It notes 'Leo Li, a 28-yar old freelance screenwriter in southern city of Kunming, says he's "pretty much all-in" on stocks but isn't borrowing to maximize returns – yet. "With leverage, it only makes sense to add it when you can be 100% certain of gains," said Li, adding that his family sold property last year to buy stocks, "That usually happens when the old grannies start rushing in during the mid-to late stage of a rally. We are not there yet, but when the time comes I will be ready."' It's nice to see young investors with such a keen understanding of the fundamentals of this rally – which are not related to Chinese CPI and PPI at 2.5% y/y (as expected) and -3.0% y/y (slightly better than the consensus), which is a very bad combination for many firms.
Yet that's good news: it means more need for central banks to get the grannies to dive in to stocks. As do two contrasting Anglo-Saxon fiscal developments.
