Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) data showed industrial profit growth in China continuing to slow
China stocks ended lower Thursday after data showed industrial profit growth in China continuing to slow in August and after the U.S. Federal Reserve lifted rates, while news of A-share inclusion in FTSE Russell indexes failed to boost sentiment.
At the close, the blue-chip CSI300 index was 0.4 percent lower at 3,403.59, while the Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.5 percent to 2,791.77 points.
China’s central bank left short-term rates unchanged on Thursday, choosing not to follow a benchmark interest rate rise by the U.S. Federal Reserve despite the risk that it could that it could put renewed pressure on the yuan.
Profit growth at China’s industrial firms slowed to a five-month low in August, fanning concerns about faltering domestic demand in the world’s second-largest economy as escalating trade frictions with the United States cloud its outlook.
The largest percentage gainers in the main Shanghai Composite index were Xinjiang Bai Hua Cun Co Ltd, up 10.03 percent, followed by Shanghai Hongda Mining Co Ltd, gaining 10.03 percent and Shandong Swan Cotton Industrial Machinery Stock Co Ltd, up by 10.03 percent.
The largest percentage losses in the Shanghai index were BAIC BluePark New Energy Technology Co Ltd down 36.88 percent, followed by HNA Technology Co Ltd losing 10.08 percent and A-Zenith Home Furnishings Co Ltd down by 10.02 percent.
So far this year, the Shanghai stock index is down 15.6 percent, the CSI300 has fallen 15.6 percent while China’s H-share index listed in Hong Kong is down 6.5 percent. Shanghai stocks have risen 2.44 percent this month.
