A new investing paradigm for China: Lessons from Beijing's education crackdown
BEIJING — As overseas investors reel from Beijing's regulatory crackdown, the rapid fallout in an industry like after-school tutoring can be a guide to what went wrong, and where future opportunities lie in China.Before China cracked down on tutoring schools this summer, major investment firms like SoftBank were pouring billions of dollars into Chinese education companies, many of which were publicly traded in the U.S. or on their way to listing there.The strategy was one of burning cash to fund exponential user growth, with hopes of profit in the future. For the strategy to work, investors aimed for a "winner takes all" approach that they'd used with other Chinese start-ups such as coffee chain Luckin Coffee and ride-hailing company Didi.

Here's what will happen when the Fed's 'tapering' starts, and why you should care
Likely before the end of the year, the Federal Reserve will start to tiptoe into the unknown.Central bank officials indicated Wednesday that they're ready to begin "tapering" – the process of slowly pulling back the stimulus they've provided during the pandemic.While the Fed has gone into policy retreat before, it has never had to pull back from such a dramatically accommodative position. For most of the past year and a half, it has been buying at least $120 billion of bonds each month, providing unprecedented support to financial markets and the economy that it now will start to walk back.The bond purchases have added more than $4 trillion to the Fed's balance sheet, which now stands at $8.5 trillion, about $7 trillion of which is the assets bought up through the Fed's quantitative easing programs, according to the central bank's data. The purchases have helped keep interest rates low, provided support to markets that malfunctioned badly at the start of the pandemic crisis, and coincided with a powerful run for the stock market.

The Fed will change trading rules for members to keep trust, Powell says
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday said the central bank's current trading rules are insufficient and promised that it would "make changes" after filings showed that officials traded stocks and bonds that could be influenced by its policy actions.He added that he was not aware of the now-controversial trades made by Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan and Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren in 2020 prior to media reports over the past month."We understand very well that the trust of the American people is essential for us to effectively carry out our mission. And that's why I directed the Fed to begin a comprehensive review of the ethics rules around permissible financial holdings and activity by Fed officials," he said.

Federal Reserve holds interest rates steady, says tapering coming 'soon'
The Federal Reserve on Wednesday held benchmark interest rates near zero but indicated that rate hikes could be coming sooner than expected, and it significantly cut its economic outlook for this year.Along with those largely expected moves, officials on the policymaking Federal Open Market Committee indicated they will start pulling back on some of the stimulus the central bank has been providing during the financial crisis. There was no sign, though, as to when that might happen."If progress continues broadly as expected, the Committee judges that a moderation in the pace of asset purchases may soon be warranted," the FOMC's post-meeting statement said. Respondents to a recent CNBC survey said they expect tapering of bond purchases to be announced in November and begin in December.

It's time to get very conservative in stocks, CNBC survey shows
(Click here to subscribe to the new Delivering Alpha newsletter.)Wall Street investors believe it's time to take some risk off the table as concerns continue to pile up this month, according to a new CNBC Delivering Alpha survey. We polled about 400 chief investment officers, equity strategists, portfolio managers and CNBC contributors who manage money about where they stood on the markets for the rest of 2021 and next year. The survey was conducted this week.More than three quarters of the respondents said now is a time to be very conservative in the stock market when asked what kind of market risk they are willing to accept for themselves and their clients.A confluence of uncertainties have emerged in the market, threatening to derail stocks' record-setting recovery rally. On Monday, the S&P 500 suffered its worst sell-off since May as investors grew concerned about China's troubling real estate sector and the Federal Reserve's likely rollback of its massive stimulus. Meanwhile, fears of slowing economic growth amid high inflation — so-called stagflation — have also crept back nearly two years since the pandemic began.

Here's why the Evergrande crisis is not China's 'Lehman moment'
BEIJING — Property developer China Evergrande's debt woes are not likely to cause the same fallout as the collapse of U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers in 2008, analysts said.Evergrande's Hong Kong-listed shares have tumbled nearly 90% since July 2020, as the Chinese government cracked down on speculation in the real estate market.The stock has lost more than 20% in the last five trading days and investors are watching to see if the highly indebted real estate giant will be able to make millions of dollars in interest payments on U.S. dollar-denominated bonds in the coming days. The jitters have contributed to global stock market declines this week.However, when it comes to the scale of potential impact on international financial markets, analysts point to a major difference between the Evergrande crisis and the Lehman collapse: Evergrande holds land, while Lehman held financial assets.
