Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) Investors seen taking profits before National Day in October

Chinese stocks fell and the yuan weakened as caution descended on the country’s financial markets ahead of its 70th anniversary celebrations.

The Shanghai Composite Index closed down 1% at 2,977, while the yuan weakened as much as 0.52% to 7.1287 a dollar. The currency has traded near 7.1 and around its 30-day moving average for about a week, with the People’s Bank of China keeping its daily fixing stronger than that level even as the yuan slumped.

No positive news came from the US-China trade talks in Washington, while unrest continued for the 16th consecutive weekend in Hong Kong.

Investors remain unconvinced that China and the U.S. are making meaningful progress on trade. China’s cancellation of a planned visit to American farms was done at the request of the U.S., people familiar with the matter said. Onshore financial markets will be shut for five trading sessions from the Oct. 1 National Day.
