“It’s like when the economy hits a peak and you’re in the market and the price is over-valued,” said David Rabinowitz, senior economist at investment bank Nomura in New York.
Mr Rabinovitz said the stock market was still well below its peak.””
We’re not just a consumer-driven economy; we’re a business-driven one.”
Mr Rabinovitz said the stock market was still well below its peak.
“There’s been a lot more volatility in China in the last year than there was in the US.
So, we’re still at a very healthy and profitable stage in the country,” he said.”
“So it’s not yet at the point where you can say we’re close to a crisis. “

In September, China’s central bank bought $US100bn ($124bn) worth of bonds in a bid to prop up the market.
The bond purchases followed a series of warnings from China’s financial watchdog, the Securities and Exchange Commission, which warned that China’s stocks were not trading at the “high-end” levels of their record peaks.
It has been an unusually volatile month for China.
On Thursday, the Chinese stock exchange closed down by over 30% on the day and China’s benchmark Shanghai Composite index plunged more than 30% in a single day.
But China’s stock markets have been buoyed by a surge in demand, which has seen demand soar from US consumers to European consumers, said Rabinovsky.
“This is a very strong sign that China has finally got a sense of normalcy,” he added.
“The Shanghai Index is up by more than 5% in the past month, which is probably a sign that the market has stabilised.”

China has also seen an increase in interest rates, which are already at record lows.
But the Shanghai Composite has also suffered a massive fall in value in the wake of a sharp drop in the value of the yuan, the national currency.
“You need a lot capital in the China market to make any sort of return,” Mr Rabinowksi said.
“So you need more money coming into the China stock market.”‘
The markets are really volatile’China’s stock indexes have been hit by a slew of warnings and warnings from regulators, including the Securities Board of China (SBOC) and the Chinese government.
Last month, the SBI warned that the country needed to lower interest rates.
The SBI also said the value and composition of China’s market were overvalued.
In January, the State Council said China’s markets were “too big”, adding that the SBE could not “provide reasonable forecasts for the
