Stock Index
 
China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) tightened leverage risk supervision, led to yesterday’s stock market disaster. Futures indexes plunged down to the limit as a whole, also, CSI-300 Index dropped by over 7%. But CSRC did not confess the liability, it denied for pummeling stock markets through journalists, hoped the market not to over-read, and claimed not to impose financers—lower than RMB 500,000—mandatory liquidation. The speech tended to calm the market, but more seems like a disclaimer. Moreover, the market did have predicted the CSRC not to conduct mandatory liquidation against financers lower than RMB 500,000. As a matter of fact, if the market kept opening low, many accounts are going to be closed. There are divergent perspectives supporting long and short positions, whether the speech of CSRC would ease the escaping trend of funds cannot tell. A shares liquidity risk is lurking.
