The value of all shares amounted to more than $6 trillion

The market value of all shares of companies traded on the stock exchanges of Japan, at the end of trading Thursday was $6,17 trillion and surpassed the market capitalization of Chinese companies ($6,09 trillion).

About it reports “Interfax-Ukraine”. On the eve of the Chinese stock index Shanghai Composite fell 2%, the Shenzhen Composite down 2.4% on the statements of the U.S. government that they can impose higher duties on Chinese goods worth $200 billion – at the rate of 25% instead of the previously planned 10%.

The Japanese Nikkei 225 index on Thursday fell 1%. The Chinese stock market overtook the Japanese in 2014, then its volume exceeded $10 trillion. However, only in 2018 the Shanghai Composite index lost more than 16% because of the risks of a trade war with the United States.

As previously reported, UBR, foreign investors continued selling off shares of Russian companies on the background of a new round of deterioration of relations with the West and growing macroeconomic risks. Per week non-residents withdrew another $10 million from the stock market after $110 million a week earlier. Funds focused solely on Russia, sold $40 million per week and $130 million for two. Funds that buy Russian in a package with other emerging markets, brought $30 million, which was not enough to offset the outflow of other foreign investors.
