Hang Seng Falls Amid Concerns Over China’s Market

Bloomberg—The Hang Seng Index dropped 54.98 points, or 0.34%, to close at 16,081.89 on Wednesday. This decline came after an initial rise caused by concerns about the effectiveness of China’s measures in supporting its falling stock market. These measures include a commitment from a government fund to buy more ETFs.

Additionally, investors were more nervous due to the anticipation of China’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI) data for January, which were expected on Thursday. This concern arose from December’s data, which showed ongoing deflationary pressures. In the United States, Federal Reserve officials’ comments supported Chair Powell’s statement on Sunday, indicating the Fed’s reluctance to adjust its monetary policy quickly.

The downturn affected various sectors, with technology, real estate, and consumer sectors leading the losses. Significant drops were seen in companies such as Semiconductor Manufacturing (-8.0%), Lenovo Group (-4.9%), Miniso Group (-4.4%), Xiaomi Corp. (-1.6%), and Meituan (-1.4%). On a positive note, electric vehicle (EV) stocks like BYD Co and Nio saw gains of 2.0% and 1.8%, respectively, following Beijing’s announcement of its plan to foster the “healthy development of new energy vehicles” in China.
