Say It Ain't So: China Intervenes In Stock Market for Parade

If true, this is proof the political hacks are back in charge.

Bloomberg: China Intervened Today to Shore Up Stocks Ahead of Military Parade
China’s government resumed its intervention in the stock market on Thursday and has been cutting holdings of U.S. Treasuries this month to support the yuan, according to people familiar with the matter.

Authorities want to stabilize equities before a Sept. 3 military parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the World War II victory over Japan, said two of the people, who asked not to be identified because the move wasn’t publicly announced. Treasury sales allow policy makers to raise dollars needed to bolster the yuan after a shock devaluation two weeks ago, according to different people familiar with the matter.
