The china mainland stock market and the HK stock market are totally different.
The HK stock market have went done last 6 months since those things happened in HK.
Actually as a violent thing become very more and more popular in HK, the HK economy have been significantly influenced.
Actually I think the GDP growth of HK this year will decrease and that is the first time the GDP growth decreased in the last 10 years so the stock market is a mirror of the economy. The performance of HK stock market is very poor. Fortunately I think the market has got a new trend to go up this month.
Nearly every investor which don’t have confidence with the HK economy have sold their stocks before so the HK market has totally priced in the protest

It is up to which stocks you have at present. There are many kinds of stocks in the HK asian market if it is a company which business is in china mainland I think you can still hold the stock because it’s business won’t be influenced by the HK protests.


The Chinese mainland stock market and the HK stock market are totally different. / don’t really influence one another. Something happening on mainland market will not influence the HK stock market.

The HK stock market has gone down in the last 6 month since the start of the protests.

As protests intensify the HK economy has taken a hit. / has gone a downward trend.

Actually I think the GDP growth of HK this year will be negative/ HK will enter a recession and that is the first time HK will have a negative growth in the last 10 years so the stock market is a mirror of the economy.

The performance of HK stock market is very poor. Fortunately I think the market is on/follows a new upward trend  this month.
