China Set to Open Stock Market to Foreigners

By December 19, 2012

Follow me on:

China is expected to allow foreign investors to trade in the country's stock index futures market by the end of January, according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal. While the market will initially be open to only a small batch of carefully selected long-term investors, the move is seen as the last step in fully opening the country's markets to foreign investors.

China's stock market fell 22% in 2011 and has lost 1.7% so far this year, as new companies list and the domestic economy slows. Opening up the market to a wider investor base could help support these new listings and stabilize the market.
