China shares fall to two-month low on property trail and virus crisis

South Africa welcomes the end of the EU Covid red registry;  mourns the loss of billions of rand

“Blue chip names resumed their drop, which weighed on the broader index,” said Ken Chen, an analyst at KGI Securities Co. “We still need to see better economic data amid the property sector stimulus and the worsening Covid spread also added pressure.”

China’s stock benchmark slid to its most minimal in over five months as a selloff in the country’s property area and worries over an expanding omicron spread soured investor sentiment. The benchmark CSI 300 Index lost as much as 1.6% to its most reduced since Nov. 10, with liquor creator Kweichow Moutai Co. being the greatest drag. Real  estate developers broaden decreases in afternoon exchanging in the midst of a Bloomberg report that few of the country’s greatest banks have become more specific with regards to funding real estate projects by nearby government financing vehicles.

China detected omicron in a second major port city, deepening concern of a wider outbreak at Beijing’s doorstep and raising the prospect that more foreign businesses might follow Toyota Motor Corp. in halting operations along the northeastern coast.

Meanwhile, China’s overnight repurchase rate climbed 25 basis points to 2.23%, the highest since October.

The CSI gauge climbed 1% on Wednesday, the most in about a month, in part due to expectations for the People’s Bank of China to cut interest rates, which would add further liquidity to the market at a time when global central banks including the Federal Reserve are moving toward withdrawing pandemic-era stimulus.

China’s slowdown probably extended into end-2021, with growth falling below 4% year on year in the fourth quarter, according to Bloomberg Economics. Data on growth and December retail sales and industrial output is due Monday.
