Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) Rallied after the Trump administration invited Beijing to restart trade talks
Stock markets rallied in China and Hong Kong on Thursday and the Chinese yuan firmed after the Trump administration invited Beijing to restart trade talks, offering some hope the two sides could pull back from the brink of a full-blown trade war.
The benchmark Shanghai Composite index .SSEC ended 1.1 percent higher at 2,686.58 points after closing at its lowest level since January 2016 on Wednesday.
The blue-chip CSI300 index .CSI300 also ended 1.1 percent higher, with a sub-index tracking securities firms gaining 1.4 percent, real estate rising 0.8 percent and industrials ending up 1 percent.
“The trade war has been a hot topic in the market all year long. The lack of clarity has been a major influence on the A-share market and to have a good signal at this low point certainly has an effect,” said Li Zheming, an analyst at Datong Securities in Dalian.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 2,783.25.
