China shares end up 2.3 pct, PMI survey supports
SHANGHAI Oct 24 (Reuters) - China stocks ended up 2.3 percent on Monday, lifted by financial and resource shares, after a survey showed China's manufacturing sector snapped a three-month contraction in October, alleviating fears of a hard landing for the Chinese economy.
The Shanghai Composite Index finished at 2,370.3 points, after a 4.7 percent fall over the week last week. The sub-index of financial shares jumped 3.5 percent. (Reporting by Chen Yixin and Jacqueline Wong)
