If Hong Kong Spirals Out of Control, We Could Take a Massive Financial Hit

I can’t help but be shaken by what’s happening in Hong Kong, even though U.S. markets have largely shaken off the rioting, chaos, and police action there so far. You see, I recall Tiananmen Square in 1989 vividly and fear that Beijing may be approaching another Tiananmen Square moment.

A 2.0 situation really.

Westerners believe that Beijing won’t risk the reputational hit that goes with armed intervention, but I beg to differ. Nobody thought that in 1989 when protestors took over Tiananmen Square either.

Beijing’s calculus is different for reasons I noted on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. this past Wednesday during a special phone interview. Worse, Beijing may prefer violence to the perception of political weakness or territorial rights.

Very few people understand what I am about to tell you… and that’s why it’s absolutely crucial that you pay attention or risk being on the wrong side an opportunity lurking unseen below the surface.

Key Takeaways

  1. Beijing’s calculus is different when it comes to “solving” Hong Kong
  2. US markets have shaken off the unrest so far but this one thing could change that instantly which is why savvy investors should prepare ahead of time.
  3. Chaos always creates opportunity (and here are two great ways to play it).

Until next time,

    It looks like what HK really wants is total autonomy. My view is that the Chinese leader who loses HK is a dead man walking. China will do what it has to do to keep HK and the Marines are not going to come to the rescue. It will shake the markets for a while.
