Which genius estimates orders at the end of Chinese lunar year? No one places any orders before Chinese New Year…it is bad luck. So many years in Business, Reuters and still using interns form New Jersey high schools to write quasi news??? Shame on you.

The real situation is that China massively contracted in 2012. This lead to a massive stimulus initiative by the U.S. and many many others. The devastation that we are about to see to the global economy due to the Chinese transition in preparation for war actually occurred over a year ago. The effects have been held off by huge stimulus, currency manipulation, and subsidies. The bad news is that there has been no real efforts to reform or deal with the already bad global economic situation, instead, there has been a military deployment and build up of the likes we have not seen since WWII. The stimulus and currency manipulations have held off this coming war for about as long as it can, and has been done in line with the great preparations for war. This can not be countered, and when the economic facade falls away there will be nothing to hold off war. This is, quite literally the most complex initiative. The developments are very polarized. We are in the beginning of world war 3.
