Today's M^3 - Shanghai SE B Share Index Down Over 12% for the Week

Today's Major Market Move feature involves the Shanghai SE B Share Index which is the special Chinese exchange for foreign investors. For those of you lamenting the 5% downward move in most of the US indexes this past month:

you can take some perverse consolation in the fact that you weren't invested in the Shanghai B Share Index which is down 12% for the week and 17% for the month(unless of course you were invested in both, in which case be happy that your savings weren't denominated in Belarusian Rubles).

The recent major downward move in the Shanghai B index was precipitated in part by a warning from US regulators "about the risks surrounding Chinese companies that have listed there through reverse mergers."
