Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) Change in Government Policy Pressuring Chinese Markets
Mainland Chinese shares were lower for a second day on Tuesday as investors continued to react to a South China Morning Post report that Beijing could refocus on structural reforms instead of offering stimulus measures after last week’s first quarter GDP report showed better-than-expected economic growth.
The report also said that China’s senior communist leaders have congratulated themselves on saving the country’s economy from a hard landing during a trade war with the United States and have decided to focus on “structural reforms”, instead of stimulus, to move the economy forward.
The Politburo, the 25-member ruling body of the country headed by President Xi Jinping, reviewed China’s growth in the first quarter on Friday and concluded that market confidence has returned and economic performance was “better than expected”, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
If you recall, last week, China reported that its gross domestic product expanded by 6.4 percent in the first quarter of this year, exceeding most estimates and remaining at the top end of China’s target growth range of 6.0-6.5 percent for 2019, although many incentives, including a cut in value-added taxes, were yet to take effect.
Investors reacted to the news by selling shares because of disappointment in the news. Stimulus measures tend to have an immediate impact on the economy and stocks, while structural reforms tend to take longer to work their way through the economy.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 56.0657. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 56.24. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -70. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 9 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 7 period(s) ago.
