HONG KONG Feb 11 China shares closed at a new
six-week high on Tuesday, underpinned by optimism that Beijing
will likely unveil more policy that could favour earnings growth
in some sectors and as liquidity concerns eased after the Lunar
New Year holiday.
The Shanghai Composite Index ended up 0.84 percent
at 2,103.67 points. The CSI300 of the leading Shanghai
and Shenzhen A-share listings inched up 0.8 percent.
Market sentiment was underpinned by expectations of upcoming
policy initiatives from the National People's Congress, the
March meeting of China's rubber-stamp parliament.
Economic figures for January will also be closely watched,
starting with China's trade figures on Wednesday, with
inflation, money supply and loan growth data to be released
later the week.
