Investors in Asia have been left with little choice but to choose stocks that have the potential to fall sharply in value, with the biggest fallers being in Japan, the United States and China.
But the market’s biggest faller may be Australia, which has already lost almost 70% of its value against the dollar over the past 12 months.
Australia has experienced a decade of rapid growth and is now one of the world’s biggest economic powerhouses, but has experienced unprecedented turmoil in recent years.
Investors have been holding onto stocks such as Westpac Banking Group (WBG) and ANZ, both of which have experienced steep losses in recent months.
The bank shares slumped more than 60% over the year, and ANZA was down more than 30% at one point.
The company has struggled to return to pre-crisis levels of profitability and has been unable to secure the backing of its lenders.
With the world facing a looming global financial crisis, many are increasingly worried about the health of the global economy.
The Australian stock market, which is heavily weighted to the Japanese and US markets, has been a source of anxiety for investors for years.
Its decline over the last year has been particularly worrying.
The S&P/ASX 200 index has lost more than 80% of the value of its major index peers, including the Australian, over the same period.
However, many investors are hoping for a brighter future for the Australian economy, particularly after the Australian dollar slumped from a record high of $US2.60 to $US1.60.
With that in mind, the ANZ shares, which have fallen about 70% against the Australian currency over the years, are a good candidate for the biggest drop in value.
As the world faces a looming financial crisis and the global markets are struggling to regain some of their former competitiveness, investors are now focusing on what to buy.
This is not necessarily a bad thing.
After all, they are the best and safest investments.
But there is a caveat to that.
The ANZ stocks, which are currently trading at $US3.05, have a very steep downside risk.
As of February 2018, the company has a market cap of $7.7 billion, according to the company’s website.
The biggest risk for the ANZA shares, however, is the bank, which had a market capitalisation of $2.4 billion at the end of 2018.
If the company continues to struggle, it could lose $2 billion, leaving the company with a net worth of just $1.8 billion.
The other biggest droper is China, which lost about 90% of value against its currency over a six-month period in 2018.
In the last 12 months, the Chinese stock market has lost almost 75% of that market cap.
That means the average price per share has plummeted by more than $3,000 over the 12 months to January 2018.
The drop is a bit of a surprise to many investors, who are hoping that China will begin to slow its economic growth and eventually emerge as the world leader in economic growth.
But that is not happening.
The Chinese stock exchange, the Shanghai Composite Index, has dropped nearly 20% over that period.
It has been losing more than half its value in just the last three months.
Investors are now looking for a new opportunity to buy into the Chinese market.
As China has been struggling to gain its economic footing, there are a lot of questions on how the country will recover from the economic shock of the financial crisis.
China’s economy is expected to shrink for the next two years.
The country’s stock market is the second largest in the world, with an average annual growth rate of 4.5%.
However, a slowdown in economic activity has caused many to speculate that China’s economic growth will slow to 1% per year in the next couple of years.
Many investors are also wondering what the future holds for the country’s currency, the renminbi, and whether the Chinese economy will recover in the near term.
In short, the global financial markets are still trying to recover from their most recent financial crisis that was triggered by the global debt crisis.
Investors who want to buy the biggest stocks in Asia, including Japan and Australia, should look for these countries to be strong in the coming years.
But be aware that the risk is very real.
There is also a lot that can go wrong, including a lack of investment and liquidity.
The market for stocks is one of those markets that are very volatile.
And with the Chinese markets already struggling to recover after a six year crash, there is every chance that things could get worse for the markets.
