The overall performanc亚博88娱乐场夜生活 of the STAR Market saw

the full pricing-in of opinions from bulls and bears, an uptrend wi

Relaxed price fluctuation limits have enabled the STAR Market stocks to be more timely priced, leading to higher p

ricing efficiency than the main board, according to analysts from Shenwan Hongyuan Securities.

亚博88娱乐场夜生活女神会所Securities regulators lifted price fluctuation limits for STAR stocks in their first five trading days, and thereafter a 20 pe

rcent daily price fluctuation limit is effective, versus a 10 percent limit on the main board.

Analysts expect trading on the STAR Market to become more rational in the medium term, with valuation levels to bet亚博88娱乐场夜生活

ter reflect company fundamentals. Firms with strong fundamentals may sustain high

valuations, while weaker ones may see a marked divergence in stock price performance.

The market-oriented initial public offering mechanism亚博88娱乐场夜生活女神会所

of the STAR Market, or the registration-based IPO system, also showed its effect, with the 28 STAR li

stings’ price-to-earnings ratios of offer price varying from 18 to 269, according to SSE data.亚博88娱乐场夜生活

This marked a difference from the main board, where almost all new offerings are p

supervision on illegal trading and dealt with eight cases of abnormal trading behavior on the new board.

New personal mortg亚博88娱乐场419论坛 to be based on LPR

China will link the personal mortgage loan rate to a new lending rate reference, starting fr

Buyers of second house should pay an interest rate that is 0.6 perc亚博88娱乐场419论坛

?Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday urged South Korea to keep its promises afte

“Regrettably, South Korea is continuing to hurt relations of trust,”

亚博88娱乐场龙凤Abe told reporters, adding that Seoul had also unilaterally carried out actions that run contra

Separately, Japan’s Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya said on Friday that the decision by South Korea was “d亚博88娱乐场龙凤女神会所

Iwaya added that Japan will continue to ask South Korea to “reconsider” its decision not to extend the General Security

of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) beyond its expiration in November.亚博88娱乐场龙凤

His remarks came after Seoul said a day earlier that the intelligence-sharing pact will not be extended owing to Tokyo’s tightening o

Japan’s Foreign Ministry confirmed Friday that South Korea ha亚博88娱乐场龙凤

The GSOMIA pact between both sides, signed in 2016, has enabled the two neighbors to sha亚博88娱乐场龙凤女神会所

The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar亚博88娱乐场千花网女神会所
