Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) stocks hit a more than three-month low
Shanghai stocks hit a more than three-month low on Tuesday, as Washington’s latest tariffs added to jitters over the prospects of a so-called “phase one” Sino-U.S. trade deal.
The Shanghai Composite Index shed as much as 0.6% to touch its lowest since Aug 26 before recouping some loses to end the morning session 0.1% lower, while the CSI300 index was unchanged at 3,836.25 points.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday announced tariffs on U.S. steel and aluminium imports from Brazil and Argentina.
Trump also said U.S. legislation backing protesters in Hong Kong did not make trade negotiations with China easier, but added he believes Beijing still wants a deal.
Meanwhile, China banned U.S. military ships and aircraft from visiting Hong Kong and slapped sanctions on several U.S. non-government organisations for allegedly encouraging anti-government protesters in the city to commit violent acts.
Following Trump’s surprise Latin American tariffs decision, there are worries that disputes between China and the United States would be hard to resolve given Trump’s emphasis on America’s interests, said Tian Weidong, an analyst with Kaiyuan Securities.
Losses in the A-share market were more limited than other markets as China’s onshore equity market had been relatively weak recently, he added.
