· Markets are entering a period of increasing uncertainty, but those with genuine understanding of the situation on the ground in China will reap huge rewards
· Kcomber’s Consolidated Commodity Data platform offers most comprehensive, accurate information on Chinese commodities available globally
[Guangzhou, 14th August 2014] The ’10 year boom’ in China’s commodities markets is over, according to many Western analysts. Among these commentators, a prevailing narrative has emerged, namely that rising but uneven demand, massive oversupply, and fallout from the on-going investigations into fraudulent use of commodities to finance transactions in Qingdao will kill off China’s attractiveness to investors.
While it is true that China’s commodities markets are entering a period of increasing uncertainty, China’s leading business information firm, Kcomber, has reminded investors that this narrative is overly simplistic and based mainly on perception, and that there are still huge opportunities available for investors with knowledge of the real situation on the ground in China.
David, the manager of Agricultural Department at Kcomber, commented: “To be frank, these recent pessimistic reports about the future of the commodities markets in China are as overblown as the optimistic reports being released just a few years ago.
“Analysts in the West are continually expressing surprise at a new set of positive economic figures released here, and sadly that is because they simply have not taken the time to understand China’s economic reality, and instead base their predictions on abstract concepts developed to analyse developed Western economies.
“In many ways the commodities markets here have become more high-risk than they were a few years ago, but China’s growth rate remains robust and there are huge opportunities for savvy investors. By far the greatest risk comes from investing in China, or anywhere, without a thorough understanding of the market you are investing in.”
