while leverage is the "kingpin" for financial performance, BOC and CCB has a very interesting setup in their option dealing room. when the oil hit -40USD a barrel, the dealing room was virtually unmanned, no one was there to cut the fishing line. :-) some bright souls there seemed very comfortable with the robot.:-) it is no surprise, the bank lost the bait and the fishing rod . when you feed the robot with rubbish..... the old adage, garbage in garbage out. hahahah

Bank of China ebanking website has english version. you should be able to change to english easy with a click. I use BOC and CCB ( China Construction Bank), both have english version. the reason I keep the BOC account is because it has more branch and ATM outside china through which I can easily withdraw cash while outside china.
one thing I found useful is, when you open a bank account with any chinese bank inside china, apart from you having the USBKey thingie working, you should insist on activating SMS code as a back up. I had bad experience with them bank changing/renew the security cert on the USBKey thingie which requires you downloading a new cert with a proscribed time frame without prior warning, rendering the USBKey useless. you have to physically go to the branch to renew the cert with your ID...etc. if that happens while your are outside china, bummer. having SMS code as back up is wise. :-)

I am in Guilin at the moment, the cops are doing the same thing here. I was told that there are teams of people from the top coming to tick the boxes of the report card for the 'ranking of most civilized cities. '

my neighbour's 4 wheel was towed away and fined for illegal parking. that sort of thing happens very rare in the city fringe. haha

yes, Anonymous C. it is Foshan, thank you. it is the pm2.5 that makes the story. here in foshan, it reads 106 micrograms and 180 micrograms lately. where in Shunde the reading reads 202. keeping in mind that below 25 is considered safe by WHO, I believe. :-)
on API, in "99 percent urbanised" hong kong where I visit often, the api can get up to 207. makes me wonder. :-)

I believe it is the dirty industries coupled with the lack of enforcement of environmental laws that are the problem. I am now in Fushan in the southern part of china in Guangdong, there is little farming (agriculture) left in this part of china but fish, pig and poultry farming, but the air pollution is choking because of the concentration of industries and the curtains of high rising buildings. if one remembers the Beijing Olympics, the gov ordered shutting down industries around Beijing in neighbouring provinces during the games, that made a difference even the air was still bad. with that perception of mine, I don't think the small farmers shouldn't be held responsibility for the problem. admittedly it helps if the small farmers can afford to pay more attention to new technology and practices.

the People's Web is tightly controlled by the party propaganda machinery. if the documentary could go "viral" without the machinery "noticed", there must be "something" at work. Now, the trivial. The report's daughter is an American because she was born in the USA. so whose money that was spent on the documentary, is not the issue.

yes, there is a "quiet censorship" going on. the local media have been told ( a phone call from the Propaganda chief ) to keep the subject in a low key - meaning no more mention of it a day after the documentary hit the screen. so... no, the gov will put gdp in front of anything else at this juncture when the economy is slowing. :-)
