We mentioned that Hong Hong was looking very weak in the early hous of the trading session, and the final tally was pretty bloody.The Hang Seng was down 4.7%, with a good chunk of the losses coming after the 9.1% Chinese GDP report from last night. For what it’s worth, Shanghai itself was only down 2.3%.

We’ve been really into watching the Macau gaming stocks lately, and those got crushed.

Wynn Macau was off 7.7%.

MGM lost 8.7%.
