nǐ zuìjìn mǎi gǔpiào le méi ？
Have you been buying stock lately?
méiyǒu 。wǒ kàn xiànzài gǔshì guòrè ，háishì jǐnshèn diǎn hǎo 。
Nope. I think the stock market is overheated now, so it's good to be a bit cautious.
nánguài nǐ fābuliǎocái 。Zhōngguó gǔshì xiànzài shì jǐshínián bùyù de dà niúshì ，mínjiān zīběn xiónghòu ，zài jiāshàng líng bā nián de Àoyùnhuì hé yī líng nián de Shìbóhuì ，zhìshǎo hái yǒu liǎng sān nián de zhǎngshì 。suǒyǐ jīnnián wǒ yīkǒuqì mǎi le hǎojǐ zhī gǔpiào 。
No wonder you aren't rich. The Chinese stock market is in its biggest bull market in the last dozen years. Between the extraordinary mass of public capital, and then the 2008 Olympics and 2010 World Fair, there will be growth for at least two to three years. So I took the plunge and bought a lot of stock this year.
nǐ bié guòfèn lèguān le 。zhèng shì yīnwèi dàjiā dōu zhème shuō ，wǒ cái juéde kěpà 。Zhōngguó de gǔshì hái bùtài chéngshú ，sǎnhù tài duō le 。érqiě dōu shì zuò duǎnxiàn de ，quēfá lǐzhì fēnxī hé yīdìng de xīnlǐ chéngshòu nénglì 。suǒyǐ ，bǎ qián fàng zài gǔshì shì fēicháng màoxiǎn de 。
Don't be too optimistic. The reason I feel scared is exactly because everyone is talking like you. The Chinese stock market still isn't mature yet. There are too many private investors, and they're all looking at the short term, lacking both rational analysis and a certain psychological endurance. This makes putting money in the stock market extraordinarily risky.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
