Chinese Stocks

Chinese stock market has weathered the storm created by U.S. sub-prime mess, all other markets have fallen sharply. Prime reason behind the outperformance of chinese stock markets is that it's domestic investor/trader participation is much more than dependance on foreign institutional money flows in their markets. All other emerging markets largely depend on foreign flows to drive their markets especially Indian and south korean markets where foreign flows are an important barometer for market direction. Also with chinese economy growing consistently 10% and above for more than past one decade is reflective of investor confidence in that market.
It will continue to outperform all other markets if it continues it's growth outperformance as compard to other economies.
