Since China’s stock markets tumbled from their mid-June peak, Beijing has rolled out a massive stimulus package, with mixed results.

The intensity of China’s stock market stimulus has raised concerns that the government is putting the country’s entire financial system at risk. It has also spooked small retail investors, who have responded by trying to front-run the government, selling before government support dries up, making the Shanghai Composite Index incredibly volatile in recent weeks.
