Regarding the Chinese ADR market, momentum is certainly back but the question is what direction the market is going to take. While the overall technical condition suggests more upside potential, a slight correction is always a possibility after such a strong week as this current one. If that happens, buy into weakness, assuming your risk tolerance is high.
As the following technical reading of Chinese indices and ETFs suggests, there is more upside left for the FXI, CAF, TAO, HAO and related Chinese ETFs. A short term correction is likely, but the picture is bright for a longer term rally.
