China mainland stocks rose for a second day on speculation regulators will introduce measures to boost equities after the benchmark index dropped to the lowest levels since 2009.
The Shanghai Composite Index climbed 0.3 percent to 2,033.19 at the close, erasing a loss of as much as 1.1 percent.
Speculation has it that regulators may introduce “concrete” measures to boost the stock market should the Shanghai index fall below the 2,000 level.
Equities have rallied so far this quarter on hopes for central bank action to stimulate the flagging global economy.
With the Shanghai Composite close to 2,000, there’s speculation but little fact to date that the government may unveil some market-boosting measures.
