Chinese Stocks are Leading the Market

Chinese stocks are leading the market. They’ve been leading and continue to do great (most of them). We’ve profiled several of these at Leavitt Brothers the last month.

Here’s S&P 500 from 1999-2002. Even though ’99 was a great year, in hindsight, it was the start of the topping process. […]
