What Is the Chinese Stock Market Called?

When you think of the Chinese Economy, you should think of Hang Seng Index. Named after the largest bank which is also one of Hong Kong's largest listed companies founded in 1993.

The name Hang Seng actually means “ever-growing” which is incredibly fitting because that is what banks, and YOUR investments should do...right?

This index is a free floating adjusted market capitalization-weighted stock-market index in China (try say that mouthful 10 times fast).

Hang Seng is located in Hong Kong which is a major city in Asia for economic activity.  Hong Kong means "fragrant harbor" probably because it has always been a hotbed for worldly trade.

The Hang Seng is used to record and monitor daily changes of the largest companies of the Hong Kong market and is look at as the main indicator of the overall market performance in China.

Facts you should know about China before investing in their economy:

  • China is a socialist country and thus has a socialist economic system controlled by the People's Republic of China. The system is based on the predominance of public ownership and state-owned enterprises within the market economy.
  • The Chinese military is expanding, especially its naval forces in the south sea, and escalating geopolitical tensions in the area. How will this affect the stock market? That is yet to be seen.  No country wants war, but it does appear that the military buildup has caught the attention of the US and other nations.
  • China is a major exporter. Their top exports are broadcasting equipment , computers like ($AAPL devices), office machine parts (like Xerox). Semiconductors (hello $AMD) and telephones (mostly cell phones). Also furniture, lighting, and miscellaneous plastics and plastic items. 

Chinese Coronavirus

The coronavirus outbreak has caused the Hang Seng to drop its biggest drop in 4 years as of February 2020. This is something that is still developing and the actual economic affects are unknown.
