  • Chinese stocks have lost more than 30% of their value since the start of 2018.
  • Fears of a slowing economy, rising debts and the impact of US President Donald Trump’s trade war have all played a role in pushing the Chinese market lower.
  • However, a wave of forced selling of company shares could see the market drop even more.
