Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) investors bet next week’s economic policy meeting will signal further easing
Chinese stocks jumped as investors bet next week’s economic policy meeting will signal further easing, spurring gains in property developers to infrastructure companies. Bonds tumbled the most in almost five months.
The Shanghai Composite Index advanced 1.2 percent at the close. A gauge of property stocks rose the most in seven weeks after China’s top economic planning body pledged to support bond issuance by highly rated companies, adding to hopes for policy easing. Anhui Conch Cement Co. was among top performers on an index of Hong Kong-traded Chinese companies. The yield on Chinese 10-year bonds headed for its biggest jump since July amid bets the nation will step up its support for the economy.
The mood was helped by signs of cooling in the U.S.-China trade tensions that have weighed heavily on stocks this year. The Shanghai benchmark has slumped 26 percent since late January. With a slowing economy also hurting sentiment, investors expect Chinese authorities to lean toward looser monetary policy to help growth, which has helped propel a rally in government bonds.
