Shares fall on liquidity concerns

Updated 2017-10-31 09:01:56 Shanghai Daily

Shanghai stocks fell yesterday after a week-long gain amid profit taking while investors worried that new shares might siphon liquidity.

The Shanghai Composite Index dipped 0.77 percent to 3,390.34 points after falling 1.7 percent in the morning session.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission said late Friday that nine companies have been approved to launch initial public offerings that seek to raise 9.5 billion yuan, more than double the average amount of funds raised in past weeks, leading to fears of tighter liquidity.

Jiangxi Copper Co lost 3.63 percent to 17.53 yuan while Yunnan Copper shed 4.97 percent and Zhongjin Gold Co fell 2.05 percent to 10.02 yuan.

Brokerages also declined, with Guoyuan Securities losing 3.06 percent to 12.35 yuan and Citic Securities dropping 2.18 percent to 17.47 yuan. Changjiang Securities sank 3.3 percent to 9.07 yuan.

Liquor makers such as Kweichow Moutai lost 4.24 percent after gaining nearly 15 percent last week, and Wuliangye Yibin Co fell 1.46 percent.
