It seems like an up day today on the markets, or it ought to be.
Figures from China indicate the economy there is going great, with growth in the first quarter at 8.4 percent. There is a slight slowdown in domestic demand, compensated by increasing exports. It seems the Chinese economy will go from strength to strength, with other economies in the region starting to motor.
The auto sales in China grew by 4.5 percent. Well, it's a huge country, and the growth potential is just about opening up.
The Shanghai Index has been up most of the past few days, so you can read it as a positive sign also.
The Chinese housing market is regulated in their own way, and the demand could be said to far exceed the supply of houses waiting to be allocated.
The China growth story this year will continue, obviously, and hopefully the European economies can also do the same.
