The futures market signalled Hong Kong stocks were likely to open higher on Wednesday, after the US market advanced modestly overnight as higher oil prices lifted the energy sector.
A-share Focus is for readers wanting to know more about the mainland investment markets, and especially the A-share market in Shanghai which has become accessible to international investors since the launch of the Shanghai-Hong Kong stock connect scheme in late 2014. A similar scheme is expected to be introduced later this year to link the Hong Kong and Shenzhen bourses. It will bring readers news about the daily performance of the A-share markets, regulatory developments and the performance of the onshore and offshore yuan markets, plus in-depth market analysis. Coverage will include a daily A-share market report, an in-depth analysis column called Across the Border and a Broker’s View column presenting the outlook for different A-share stocks and sectors. There will also be a Chart of Day three times a week focusing on the A-share, yuan and mainland commodities markets.
