In the shadow of the Swiss Franc

In the shadow of the turmoil about the Swiss Franc, the Chinese stock markets had a real bad start into the week. The stocks plunged due to planed bans for certain finance products by the Chinese regulators. At one point Monday, the Shanghai Composite Index was down 8.3 percent. It later trimmed that to a loss of 7.7 percent. Although Monday's fall was quite dramatic investors in other markets see the situation peculiar to China.
