Are Chinese Stocks About to Give Back All of Their 2019 Gains?

Following a remarkable 39% gain from its December lows, China A50, an index made up by mainland Chinese shares, dropped sharply and at the time of writing they had slid by 12.55% from their 2019 high.

The price had also reached the price target of a head and shoulders pattern formed in April and triggered on May 6. The pattern suggested a 6.2% decline.

The outlook going forward remains bearish unless the Chinese and U.S. governments compromise as an increase in tariffs could lead to a decline in consumption and higher inflation in the US and China.

On Friday, tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese goods could increase from 10% to 25%, and the remaining US$325 billion of Chinese goods that have not been affected by tariffs could see duty added to them at the rate of 25%.

Per the April head and shoulders pattern the China A50 is short-term oversold, but looking beyond the near term, the China A50 could be in the process to carve out a major head and shoulders pattern that is projecting that prices could slide as low as their 2019 lows.
