China stocks flat despite Vanke excitement; HK rises on UK easing

China stocks

China stocks were little changed on Friday and on track to end the week roughly flat as worries about the economy and regulators’ crackdown on speculation keep investors on the sidelines.

But Hong Kong shares follow other Asian markets higher after the Bank of England launched a larger-than-expected monetary stimulus package.

China’s blue-chip CSI300 index inched up 0.1 per cent to 3,203.80 points by the lunch break, while the Shanghai Composite Index dipped 0.1 per cent to 2,979.38.

Turnover has been thin recently, as regulators have tightened supervision over speculative trading, while risk appetite has been curbed by few signs of economic recovery and questions about the extent of further stimulus.

Risk Warning:

Please remember that financial investments may rise or fall and past performance does not guarantee future performance in respect of income or capital growth; you may not get back the amount you invested.

There is no obligation to purchase anything but, if you decide to do so, you are strongly advised to consult a professional adviser before making any investment decisions.
