Shanghai Index nearing major low

by Gary Glover

Everyone is incredibly bearish about the Chinese economy and its stockmarket.  From my experience this is often when markets find their lows, when everyone turns typically uniformly bearish.  The stockmarket is generally 6 months ahead of the economy so we could be getting close to a bottom in the Shanghai Index based on sentiment alone.
Technically this is an overlapping decline, a descending wedge pattern and these are normally incredibly bullish patterns longer term.  The risk here is probably time rather than price as price could remain weak for a bit longer in time.  
The Nikkei made a similar pattern back in late 2012 and went on to almost double in price  within 18 months of the low.  Almost every broking house is very negative China and Chinese Equities so we could be very close to a major low.
