Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) rebounding from its three-month lows
At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was up 1.4% at 2,892.38, while the blue-chip CSI300 index gained 1.2%. Both indexes bounced from their lowest since January 22, hit earlier in the session.
CSI300’s sub-indexes for the financial sector, the consumer staples sector, and healthcare shares were all higher by almost 1%, while real estate stocks climbed 0.9%.
Data on Monday showed profits for China’s industrial firms dropping in April on slowing demand and manufacturing activity, suggesting the previous month’s rebound may have been a one-off and added pressure for policymakers to step up support for a cooling economy.
Premier Li Keqiang said on Friday China aimed to keep value-added taxes for the manufacturing industry at low levels and encourage companies to innovate, a move that Li said will ultimately help create jobs and maintain sustainable economic growth.
China’s financial regulators said on Friday the country’s banking and insurance regulator will take control of Inner Mongolia-based Baoshang Bank due to the serious credit risks it poses, in a rare takeover of a domestic lender. Regional banks’ shares fell and their funding costs rose on Monday.
Policymakers will unlikely let the Shanghai Composite slip below the key level of 2,800, as such a fall could trigger credit risks from pledged-share financing, Citic Securities’ analysts wrote in a note on Monday.
