China stocks ended down on Wednesday, after a senior White House adviser played down expectations of fresh trade talks, while the market reacted coolly to a largely symbolic pledge to further liberalise the country's financial markets.
The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 0.7%, to 3,930.10, while the Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.4% to 3,008.81 points.
Caution remained amid lingering uncertainties over potential trade negotiations between China and the United States.
A senior White House adviser damped down expectations on Tuesday for the next rounds of U.S.-China trade talks, urging investors, businesses and the public to be patient about resolving the two-year trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies.
