(Chinavestor) 2010 has been a difficult year for investors so far. Despite a strong comeback for American indices in February, most benchmarks are still in the red for year-to-date. And while American investors had a hard time to adjust to the reality of 2010, Chinese investors have suffered more severely. The DJIA rebounded 2.6% in February but the Shanghai Composite gained only 2.1% and the Hang Seng advanced lagged behind her U.S. counterpart with a 2.4% advance. China stock investors know that this is a hardly unusual case, e.g. strong U.S. markets outperform lackluster Chinese ones.
