Looking at components of key ETFs in Asia this morning, outlook is weak for large cap Chinese stocks. All but two components of the 25 member iShare FTSE/Xinhua 25 China Index (NYSE:FXI) fell on Thursday suggesting a weak opening for this Chinese large cap proxy. The FXI fell twice that of small cap proxy Guggenheim Small Cap China Fund (NYSE:HAO0 on Wednesday, a trend that may continue into Thursday.

If components of the Hang Seng Index (INDEXHANGSENG:.HSI) can serve as a proxy for ADR trading, large cap Chinese stocks are expected to suffer, but China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) and Petrochina Co. Ltd. (NYSE:PTR) has some of the smallest downside. But China Southern Airlines (NYSE:ZNH) is going to continue going downhill, if this assumption is right.
