The chart doesn't make sense. Blue and brown overlaps. Please correct.

Jack, the Shanghai Composite (blue) is made up of both the A (brown) and B (green) shares. The Composite Index has 885 members and the A-Share Index has 832, they are very closely related (as you have noticed they are almost identical). The B-Share Index has 54 members. This chart highlights the differnce between the Shanghai Composite and the Shanghai B-Shares that foreigners can buy.

I'm a little confused by the Yuan % change.

The yuan (red line) is going down relative to... what? And if the X axis is correct, then your chart shows the Yuan going down every month by an increasing percentage. I.e., the Yuan decreased in value nearly 4% from 4/23 to 5/23, according to your chart. That obviously isn't right, so perhaps you could tell me what the Yuan line is supposed to show. Thanks.

Yes Osman, I read your question. The Yuan is posted as the % change v the dollar. So in May of 2006 it was quoted as 8.024 Yuan per USD, at the end of the chart it was down 3.85% to 7.71 Yuan per USD. Does this answer your question?
