China Stock Exchange

The Chinese stock market is one of the most powerful there is

There are many stock indices that we can find in the different exchanges. They are all entities in which we can invest. However, on many occasions various indices are put together, usually from the strongest companies, to unify the indices of a specific country. One of the strongest, without a doubt, is the Chinese stock market.

As we have already mentioned, there are a large number of stock indices and it can sometimes be confusing or difficult to find the one that interests us. In this article we are going to talk about the stock index of the Chinese stock market, its components and its schedules.

What is the name of the index of the Chinese stock market?

The CSI 300 is the stock index of the Chinese stock market

The main Chinese stock index is called the CSI 300. It is a capitalization-weighted stock index that is designed to aggregate the performance of the top 300 stocks traded both on the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. It has two sub-indices: the CSI 100 index and the CSI 200 index. Apart from the main one, there are other indexes of the Chinese stock market depending on the creator. These include the FTSE China A50, which includes A-only shares on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges.

For the Hong Kong stock market we have the Hang Seng. This index represents the 33 largest companies in Hong Kong. These occupy 65% ​​of the total of listed companies.

Over the years, it has been considered the Chinese counterpart to the S&P 500 index and a better indicator of the Chinese stock market than the more traditional SSE composite index. The index is compiled by China Securities Index Company, Ltd. It is considered a first-class index for mainland Chinese stock exchanges. First-class indices are those owned by a corporation with a national reputation for quality, reliability, and the ability to operate profitably through good times and bad.

    Investments in the stock market have always been a very good option. I have my business in Colombia since 2002 on plastic, it has been good for me, I cannot complain. I have always liked trading and last year I felt that it was time to invest. I contacted Foster Swiss, a Swiss consultancy that I already had references from by acquaintances and they helped me with the whole process. I have seen fruits, I have done very well, and I already know that I have savings that are multiplying.
