Evergrande default points to transparency problem
The Evergrande real estate implosion set off fears across global markets paralleling growing concerns with the skyrocketing energy costs in Asia and Europe.
To add to the uncertainty with Evergrande’s default on its massive real estate holdings in China, the tripling of energy prices in Europe and Asia adds another level of complexity and concern for global markets. Within China where transparent data is an evasive target, the challenge for professional traders is heightened.
As Evergrande awaits official announcement on a new majority owner, reports suggest it will be Hopson Development, closer inspection into varied commodities within China poses a heightened challenge in scrutinizing the validity of data collected and analyzed for trading execution.
