Shares in China finished lower in thin trade on Wednesday, extending the previous day’s small losses as investors continued to fret over slowing growth and the impact of the Sino-U.S. trade dispute, and await more signs of support from Beijing.
At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was down 0.2% at 2,931.69. Trading volumes were relatively light, with about 14.96 billion shares traded on the Shanghai exchange, roughly 76.6% of the market’s 30-day moving average of 19.54 billion shares a day.
The blue-chip CSI300 index was down 0.06%, with its financial sector sub-index lower by 0.18%, the consumer staples sector down 0.16%, the real estate index up 0.63% and the healthcare sub-index up 0.08%.
The smaller Shenzhen index ended up 0.16% and the start-up board ChiNext Composite index was higher by 0.32%.
