Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) stocks fall as bank lending disappoints
Chinese shares fell on Tuesday after data showed banks extended fewer-than-expected new loans in July.
The Shanghai Composite index closed down 0.6% at 2,797.26, while the blue-chip CSI300 index ended 0.9% lower.
The smaller Shenzhen index ended down 0.7% and the start-up board ChiNext Composite index was weaker by 1%.
Chinese banks extended 1.06 trillion yuan ($150.06 billion) in new yuan loans in July, down from June and falling short of analysts’ expectations, according to data released by the People’s Bank of China on Monday.
Analysts expect Beijing to allow more easing to energise growth. “Investors we spoke to are not yet convinced that announced easing measures will raise consumption and investments,” UBS China strategist Wendy Liu said in a note on Tuesday. The Swiss bank toned down its China 2019 GDP growth forecast to 6.1% from 6.2% previously.
