Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) Investors are cautious ahead of Trump-Xi meet
Chinese stocks were the world’s worst performers Tuesday, falling the most this month, and Hong Kong’s November rebound came unstuck.
The CSI 300 Index slid 2.3 percent, with technology shares leading declines after another sell-off in the U.S. That also dragged on Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index, which lost 2 percent as all but two of its 50 members declined. Internet giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. retreated 3.3 percent.
Investors in China have been stung by a myriad of factors this year, including a trade war with the U.S. that has helped send the equity benchmark down 20 percent. Uncertainty continues to swirl around the dispute and whether any progress will be made when presidents Xi Jinping and Donald Trump meet on the sidelines of the G20 in Buenos Aires.
Among individual movers, surveillance-product maker Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co. slid 8.7 percent following news the U.S. may tighten controls on the export of Artificial Intelligence tools. Hong Kong-listed luxury watchmakers including Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Ltd. fell after Bank of America Corp. warned of weakening demand from Chinese consumers.
