Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) systemic reform is imperative
There have been calls from high-level government officials to boost the stock market in recent days and various measures have been taken, but the core issue is not to return to the kind of bull market that was seen in 2014 and early 2015.
Instead the key factor is finding out how to stabilize the market so that confidence in it can be rebuilt. Based on past experience, government polices to boost the market only have short-term effects. To ensure long-term stable growth in the Chinese stock market, systemic reform is imperative.
During the market crisis in 2015, after the Shanghai Composite Index dropped by 6.5 percent on May 28, the Xinhua News Agency called for stabilizing measures. But within one month, the index fell more than 9 percent.
In 2016, when the Shanghai Composite Index declined by 6.9 percent on January 4, the China Securities Regulatory Commission moved to support the market the very next day and this lifted the index. But a month later, the index was still 17 percent lower than the level on January 4.
Share pledge financing also involves many institutions and many areas. The unknown risks make it more likely that investors will panic. This is the key reason for this year’s repeated market declines.
If regulators do not step in, there will be a bigger problem because the panic will trigger a new round of declines and cause greater trouble.
If the authorities do not institute systemic reforms in the Chinese stock market, it will not be easy to ensure long-term stable development.
