    Hi everyone

    Shanghai Composite Index increase twice (200%) within the last 2 years. There was market correction in Jan 2007. Now it is too high? Do you think that the market will continuely go up?

    Is this a relevant time to invest in China?

    Thanks

    Hard one to call.

    You put 3 leading economists in the room and you'll probably get 'it's got room to grow', 'it's about to burst', 'it'll level out'.

    Won't throw my hat into the ring as to the economies direction, to many if's and buts.

    If you want access to China (or more so Asia) with some security of capital protection it might be worth having a look at the new Macquarie Gateway offer - in no way a recommendation to invest - just pointing out there are options to get exposure to China with some downside protection.
