The STAR Market has been seen as the testing ground of capital market reforms. No daily limit
of stock price rises or losses was imposed on the first five trading 上海会所品茶微信days, and after that a 20-percent dai
ly limit was adopted, versus a 10-percent limit for other boards of the A-share market.
上海会所As the 20-percent daily limit is applied from next Monday and as investors understand more about the fundame
ntals of the listed stocks, the volatility of the new market is set to decrease, Wang said.
“Prices of stocks on the STAR Market are expected not to continue g上海会所品茶微信
oing up or down together but to diverge, as investors take a closer look at the listed firms’ fu
ndamentals, instead of regarding stocks on the new board as a whole,” Wang said.
上海会所Li Daxiao, chief economist at Shenzhen-based Yingda Securities, said stocks of the new market m
ay be overvalued as investors chased the small amount of listings on the new board, citing that the average price-t
o-earnings ratio, a common gauge of valuation, of the STAR Market has risen to more than 100.上海会所品茶微信
But any bursting of a price bubble is unlikely to happen, Li said, as the number of listed firms will not increase sharply.
上海会所Although the new board may draw funds from the other submarket
s, it is unlikely to weigh on the performance of the whole A-share market in the third quarter, Li added.
“The actual impact of draining liquidity is limited, but it was the uncertainty that took a toll on in上海会所
vestor sentiment. With the smooth debut of the STAR Market, such concerns will gradually disappear,” Li said.
上海会所品茶微信The whole A-share market may rally in the third quarter, given ex
pectations of the accommodative monetary environment, the influx of foreign cap
ital, and the recovery in listed firms’ financial performances as the economy stabilizes, according to Li.上海会所品茶微信

The Chinese authorities’ ramped-up efforts to promote high-qualit

lease of an updated list on NEVs to enjoy exemptions of vehicle and vessel tax, will further help boost the healthy de

The vehicle and vessel tax, paid annually by car or ship owners, varies between hundre 上海会所
ds of yuan to thousands of yuan, depending on engine sizes and the capacity of vehicles or ships.
上海会所品茶微信According to the latest list of NEVs and small engine vehicles to enjoy vehicle and vessel tax cu
ts that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued recently on its website, vehicle and ve
ssel tax will be slashed completely for 444 types of NEVs and halved for 72 types of energy-saving vehicles. 上海会所
Moreover, the list has extended tax cuts to more NEVs compared with the previous list, and
上海会所品茶微信makes higher requirements on the performance of the NEVs to be included, such as lower power co
nsumption per 100 kilometers, the increased energy density of battery packs, and a higher cruising range, a

“The new list mirrors the progress of China’s NEVs, especially in key perfo
上海会所rmance indicators, and such progress is driven by incentives from the Chinese authorities,” Cui said.
“It is obvious Chinese NEVs have been making remarkable progress in high-quality development, and this will continue.”
