Hong Kong Stocks
In the last 3 months, the Hong Kong stock market has continued to rebound, with the Hang Seng Index (HSI) rebounding by more than 50% in aggregate and the Hang Seng TECH Index (HSTECH) by more than 60%.
However, since entering February, Hong Kong stocks have reverted to a pullback, overlaid with some macro factors, as well as the recent news, market confidence seems to have wavered once again, and many funds have even chosen to fall back on their pockets.

With the double stimulation, the Internet, finance, real estate, medicine and consumer sectors have become the biggest gainers.
After a substantial short-term rebound in stocks, if it is only a positive stimulus from the companies’ own valuation repair and macroeconomic growth expectations, then there will not be any problem, and the possibility of the stock price plunging back again is extremely low even if it no longer rises.
However, the new situation lies in the recent emergence of a number of uncertainties in the market, is to be wary of factors.
First, the recent incident of Hong Kong stockbrokers suspending mainland shareholders from opening accounts and trading in Hong Kong stocks for a short period of time is starting to receive more attention.
Secondly, the Biden administration has recently been rumored to have made some small restrictive moves on our side’s investment in the technology sector.
Reflecting that the relationship between the two sides tends to be complicated, to a certain extent, it has an impact on the confidence of the capital market.
At the same time, technology stocks are the largest proportion of the Chinese stocks, although these technology stocks have also basically returned to Hong Kong for a second listing, but not a good news.
Thirdly, the uncertainty brought by the Fed-led interest rate hike cycle and the geopolitical situation.
