Welcome to the first trading day of the last week of the first quarter.

It's been quite a quarter. The Hang Seng Index is up 12.6 per cent for the year, while the Shanghai Composite Index galloped into a bull market and is now ahead by nearly 25 per cent for 2019.

Your main markets guides today will be Zhang Shidong in Shanghai and Deb Price in Hong Kong. We'll keep you up on the markets throughout the day, helped out by the rest of the markets team as well as other reporters on our Business desk.

So, keep coming back to check out the latest!
