ETFalpha consulting believe that China’s stock market will continue under-performing the generic MSCI Emerging Markets Index. They recommend to follow closely the $FXI (China) vs. $EEM (Emerging Markets) ratio which has been on the steep slide since mid 2015. Currently the ratio trades at 1.005 and the closest support level is at 0.95. Once this one is broken the ratio may go into a free-fall and find the next firm support as low as at 0.80.
