- Sunday protests in Hong Kong end with brutal attack on demonstrators at a train station
- Hang Seng, Shanghai open lower
Welcome to a fresh week, traders.
China's new STAR technology board, which started trading today, is living up to expectations that it will turn into a hotbed for speculators.
The end of Sunday's tense protests ended in violence, with rod-wielding attackers beating demonstrators at a Hong Kong railway station. The protests are weighing on business sentiment in the city, hurting some retail sales, discouraging some Chinese tourists to come, and prompting some foreign investors to think about Hong Kong's long-term stability and attractiveness.
Meanwhile, some Chinese companies want to buy US agricultural products and have asked for for exemptions from the tariffs imposed on them by Beijing, state media reports.
And over the weekend, China lifted some restrictions on foreign investment in the financial sector, one year earlier than planned.
