Morning Call. Market Overview for 31.10.2016


The Big Picture

China lacks a state pension scheme. Its people need to meet private measures for their old age, as such the savings ratio is very high in China at 50% of GDP. These excessive savings are funneled in to superfluous infrastructure projects, allowing the Chinese communist party to keep the Gross Domestic Product high. This high GDP is necessary to maintain social stability and to fasten the Communists power. In the mid to long term, this policy is contra productive. Private investors lack confidence in the economy, leaving them to invest in over expensive real estate. In addition, many funds are sent offshore, partially being used for takeovers.  Germany´s industrial knowledge in particular, is at the center of these takeover desires.


The DAX is in a sideways trend.  Resistance is at 10820, support at 10250.
