HONG KONG, July 30 China's major indexes broke a
long-winning streak on Wednesday, with early gains led by index
heavyweight PetroChina Co Ltd offset by falls in
property companies and banks.
The Shanghai Composite Index ended down 0.1 percent
at 2,181.24 points, breaking its six-day winning streak which
was the longest since August 2013.
The CSI300 of the leading Shanghai and Shenzhen
A-share listings slipped 0.4 percent, ending eight straight days
PetroChina was among top index boosts in Shanghai, climbing
more than 6 percent at one point before trimming gains to end
3.1 percent higher. The government said on Tuesday it had
launched a corruption investigation into former domestic
security chief Zhou Yongkang, who served as CNPC's general
manager from 1996-1998.
