China fears

Japan`s Nikkei fell -2,6% today, as investors locked in some profits as caution over Chinese demand continued to hurt commodity stocks. Nikkei ended at 14,830,39 points. It`s all down in Europe too. Gold is up +1,22%.


Shanghai copper fell by its 5% daily limit and London copper hit a 44-month low. Investors eyes are on mining stocks now because the world’s top user of copper (China) could unlock copper from financing deals and unleash more selling.

Credit Agricole said in a note that it looks bad, and that copper prices continue to be hit by China growth worries. Ukraine tensions have intensified with diplomatic efforts yielding no success and that makes investors nervous.

The U.S markets will open up in a negative territory today, putting the S&P 500 on track for a third day of declines. All this because of the China fear. Not all the investors are selling stocks. Some of them are always looking for bulls.

Take a look at Oxigene Inc (OXGN:O) today. That stock surged 145% before the opening bell, trading at $5,93. They have declared a contract with shareholders to purchase an aggregate of almost $12 million of units at a price of $2,05.
