When this Hong Kong actor appears on the silver screen, watch out for a possible selloff in the Hang Seng.

The index's recent rally to seven-year highs could abruptly pull back on Tuesday after the television drama "The Greed of Man" from the local TVB network reairs in Hong Kong at 12:15 a.m. local time (12:15 p.m. Monday ET).

First aired in 1992, the show stars Adam Cheng in the role of "Ting Hai." The character is a stock market speculator who put a negative face on the financial world with his triad involvement.
