Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) Property developers and financial firms lift China shares
Property developers and financial firms lifted China’s main stock indexes on Monday as the government continues to roll out policy measures to support markets, and amid growing expectations of more loose policy to come.
At the close of trade, the Shanghai Composite Index was 0.9 percent higher at 2,703.51 points. The blue-chip CSI300 index rose 1.1 percent, to 3,294.60 points.
China’s stubbornly weak credit growth has spurred talk of its first cut in benchmark lending rates in three years, but economists and policy insiders say concerns about a potential knock to its currency will likely give the central bank pause.
Shares in Chinese developers jumped on rising expectations of a rate cut that could lower borrowing costs for developers and home buyers. The CSI300 real estate index added 4.18 percent.
The Shanghai stock index is above its 50-day moving average and below its 200-day moving average.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 159.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 9 period(s) ago.
