Is the Dow Jones partnership just the beginning?
The short answer is yes (opinion not advice). JRJC, through the Dow Jones partnership, have catapulted themselves into the upper tier of financial news. Because within Dow Jones is The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Market Watch, and Factiva. The connection to these brands alone will see China Finance Online into a new age. To use the words of Christopher Ellis, Asian Pacific partnership executive at Dow Jones, “This new partnership with China Finance Online marks an exciting new chapter for our business in Asia”. Overall, the likelihood of JRJC landing more financial news partnerships in the years to come is now high – the snowball effect (opinion not advice)

Before I begin I am obliged to remind our readers that this is not financial advice but rather my commentary on my extensive research in this area
Does riding the wave hold any potential?
JRJC’s pre-market activity is extremely bullish, making many investors tempted to jump on the moving train. However, YIG would like to point out that pre-market trading is very much a dangerous illusion. The current perception is that JRJC will continue to rise forever, luring many investors to jump on the buy order at the bell. However, at the bell is when volatility is most high. So yes, entering at open could provide some short term gains. (Opinion not advice) However, the music could stop right after the bell, resulting in instant losses. It would be smart to track the pre-market data until the bell and see if there is a slowing in the growth or an acceleration.
Taking a long-term approach
To reap the rewards of a long-term JRJC investment your entry must be impeccable. Because snapping up shares at a discount is a key part of the strategy. In the case of JRJC simply investing at the bell and leaving it for the long might provide you with a potential gain but there could be smarter ways to play it. Waiting for the pullback is long-term investors best bet (opinion not advice). Because ‘All good things come to an end’, well at least temporary. The euphoria surrounding JRJC should subside once institutions or sellers begin to start taking profits. Providing investors with an opportunity to ride the long-term wave as the value of the JRJC should see the share price rise over the time horizon (opinion not advice).
