Home prices fell in 46 out of 70 tracked Chinese cities in March, up from declines in 45 in February, reports the NBS. On a Y/Y basis, home prices declined in 38 cities vs. just 27 in February. Home sales were 17% lower during Q1, says Credit Agicole's Dariusz Kowalczyk, citing separate data. Shangahi +2% last night, led by property developers. Go figure.

    Well, bubbble mania is NOT a legitimate economic policy, as the whole world is now beginning to realize. Slow real growth is superior to manic inflated monetary growth.
