Abstract

From 2014–15, China witnessed a super bull in its stock market, as the major SSE Composite Index was more than doubled, but it was followed by an unprecedented crash triggering a global sell-off. This article argues that margin trading, which means investors that borrow money from stock brokers or shadow banks to purchase shares, accounted for the stock bubble.
