Xi Jinping slept on a straw mat in a flea-infested cave in rural China for seven years… It was part of his "re-education." You see, Xi's father was a founding member of the Communist Party of China. But this hurt, rather than helped, Xi when his father fell from power. He was seen as a privileged "princeling." And the Communist Party didn't want him. Xi underwent years of hard labor in the fields of Liangjiahe to "cleanse" him of his affluent upbringing. The party rejected him 10 times. But it finally accepted him in 1974. Today, Xi is the president of China. And he recently made a statement that will change everything about the Chinese stock market… Let me explain… Last month, Xi became much more than just an influential president…

Axiom Capital’s Gordon Johnson warns that iron ore prices might be ready to drop:
Beware: An Imminent End to an Epic Restock Suggests Iron Ore Prices May Snap Back Toward Fundamentals. Our work suggests ~70% of global iron ore demand can be met at a cash cost of <$23/t; add in $8/t for interest, CAPEX, & other, & we get to a breakeven of $31/t. In addition, w/ inventory restocking & current prices making further investment attractive, despite current excesses, we believe iron ore prices should be ~$40/t (i.e., below marginal costs); in this fashion, w/ Chinese real estate investment on the decline, we view iron ore spot prices >$62/t as a stretch. So what has been propping prices? In our view, one word restocking; first by the mills, undergoing the biggest restocking effort of Chinese steel in >6-yrs., & then by the traders, which have built their iron ore port stocks to a record, w/ days of inventory at a 2.5-yr. high (Ex. 18-19). Yet, w/ data pointing to peak steel inventory, implying risk to n-term ore demand, & the govt probing speculative trading, we see the current restocking cycle as very much so in the later innings
