THE Chinese markets continued their winning ways last week, with all four indices finishing in higher territory. The most active was the Shanghai A market which was swamped by heavy volumes on Friday. The Credit Lyonnais Shanghai A index ended the week at 5,245.4, compared with the previous week's close of 4,991.22. Its B-share counterpart closed the week at 999.75 against the previous week's 885.67. On the Shanghai A market on Friday, computers were stretched to the limit as a record 160 million shares changed hands. Its sister B market was also shining at the end of the week, fuelled by the listing of Shanghai Phoenix Bicycle which traded 16.7 million shares, setting a record for a single day's turnover for B shares. The counter ended its debut at a 27.7-cent premium to its issue price of 40.5 cents. In Shenzhen the Credit Lyonnais A-share index closed at 2,091.02 compared with 2,039.04, while the B-share index closed at 1,478.45 against 1,266.93 the week previous. In mid-week trading on the Shanghai B market, sentiment was strong on renewed industrial optimism. The rally was led by property developer Lujiazui, a big player in Shanghai's Pudong industrial site. China Textile maintained gains in heavy trading. The company is to be listed in Europe in the form of a Swiss franc-denominated convertible bond. Shanghai Forever Bicycle stayed on its winning path, also chalking up advances.
