What China's Stimulus Means for U.S. Markets Posted at 1:44 p.m. EDT on Thursday, Sept. 27 We keep hearing that stocks have advanced and seeing the headline "Stocks Advance Because of the Hope for Chinese Stimulus." This headline is a recurring excuse for any advance, particularly a commodity-led one, so perhaps it is worth parsing where we are with Chinese stimulus and what it means for our markets. First, we always get excited about Chinese stimulus when we see the Chinese stock market rally like it did last night, with a better than 2.5% gain for the most closely followed Chinese stock index. That makes sense when you consider that the European stock indices all turned ahead of when the rich countries agreed, preliminarily at least, to help the poor ones.
