Hang Seng records worst quarter in four years

Friday, November 15, 2019

The Hong Kong stock market underwent a sharp correction in the third quarter, the government said today.

The unrest combined with the Sino-US trade tensions and softening global economic growth, significantly dampened investment sentiment.

The Hang Seng Index slid by 8.6 percent from end-June to 26,092 at end September, the largest quarterly loss since the third quarter of 2015. On November 14, the HSI closed at 26 324.
