E-mail Print PDF

decline1 April 16, 2010 (Chinavestor) China stocks fell in Asia on Friday sending the Hang Seng Index (INDEXHANGSENG:.HSI) and the Shanghai Composite Index (SHA:000001) into the red for the week. The Hang Seng Index fell -292.6 points or -1.3% while the Shanghai Composite Index (SHA:000001) tumbled -34.66 points or -1.1%. Chinese investors sidelined positive earnings from the U.S. and focused on fiscal tightening measures, steps that the Chinese government is going to take to cool the economy. China's GDP grew 11.9% in the first three months of 2010 and property prices surged 11.7% in March, prompting investors to take defensive measures should the government tighten fiscal policy. Down payment of second homes rose to 50% from 40% while down payment on third or more homes will be raised by a wide margin - suggested the State Council in a statement on Thursday.
