Chart Of The Day: China ETF (FXI) Breaks Out To 7 Year Highs

china risingSince the 2009 bottom, US equities have outperformed most of their global peers. One of the underperforming laggards has been China. And using ETFs as comparables, the ishares China ETF (FXI) simply moved sideways in a wide range for most of the past five years.

That is, until 2015.

Since last spring, the China ETF has been on a tear, rising over 50 percent. And that rally found sunny skies this year, as FXI busted out to new 7 year highs. And when I say busted out, I mean jailbreak style. FXI has jumped nearly 16 percent in the past 8 trading sessions. And a big chunk of that was gained today (6.15%). See the charts below.
