The Chinese stock market has already "crashed" in our terms...down 12% and 22% in the last 2 years...all being discussed is not new news.
The big difference is that china is government run and they have the pocket book unlike the u.s and Europe to stimulate....they have to keep it going they cannot have social unrest in china...and their populace is getting used to the new way...
Jeremy grantham has done a lot of work on commodities and feels as many that we are in a global shortage of everything...they peg the chance reversal of the trend in iron ore as the lowest probability of all commodities...can't remember the number but I believe it is 1000000 to 1. I hope he is right as well....we are only looking at keeping these levels not the $191 a ton we hit last february....the average price was $167 a ton last year and $144 for 2010.

It is true that the Chinese government has very deep pockets and can control  the market to a great extent - I look them to stimulate again or increase imports or do both to placate all.

China is showing it's appetite for uranium quietly as well...altius is positioned to benefit here as well with the lift of the ban on uranium mining in the central belt. We think that this forgotten asset at altius will pay big dividends in the not too distant future. Actually if you look at it from the view of the Chinese...altius is a perfect play to get control of large resources in Newfoundland and Labrador...with the political backing that comes with altius..they have a friendly environment...as we are seeing they are having to bid against Rio Tinto et all. All over the world...Paladin paid .91 cents a pound for aurora..Rio Tinto paid $10 a pound for Hathor and the above bids show the  Chinese are quite high as well...altius already partners with Rio Tinto in Newfoundland in iron ore

By my count they've bought back about 200k shares in the past 6 month. (I could be wrong about that, though, as it was just quick back of the enveloppe math)

It is a good thing.

Apparently manufacturing in China didnt contract further but India is expanding. Indian economy is about a third of China's in real terms and has the same characteristics of the U.S economy where the consumer drives demand.

This is very good news! Maybe the best news that we have had in the development of Kami!

Most people on the board do not know who Danny Willlims is...google him.. He is extremely tough and gets things done. He is the most connected man in Eastern Canada.

It sure can't hurt to have these kind of political connections!

Meanwhile, ADV is back above $3.
