Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) investors cheered Beijing’s latest policy easing to boost the economy
Chinese stocks extended a rally into a third session on Tuesday, as investors cheered Beijing’s latest policy easing to boost the economy after a private survey showed sluggish growth in the domestic services sector.
The blue-chip CSI300 index .CSI300 ended up 0.6% at 4,002.81, while the Shanghai Composite Index .SSEC added 0.5% at 2,991.56.
The Shanghai SE 50 index .SSE50, dubbed China’s “Nifty 50” index, which tracks the 50 most representative heavyweights on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, climbed as much as 1.0% to its highest level since February 2018.
China’s central bank cut the interest rate on its medium-term lending facility (MLF) on Tuesday for the first time since early 2016, as policymakers work to prop up a slowing economy hit by weaker demand at home and abroad.
Beijing has been counting on the services sector, which accounts for more than half of China’s economy, to partly offset sluggish domestic and global demand for manufactured products as a prolonged trade war with the United States drags on.
Developments in Sino-U.S. trade talks remained in focus, with China pushing U.S. President Donald Trump to remove more tariffs imposed in September as part of a “phase one” U.S.-China trade deal, people familiar with the negotiations said on Monday.
