Foreigners turn sellers of Chinese shares in July on COVID worries By Reuters

(Reuters) – Overseas investors turned net sellers of Chinese stocks in July, as mainland stock prices tumbled on concerns that COVID-19 flare-ups and ensuing lockdowns would further disrupt economic activity.

Refinitiv data showed foreigners sold a net 21.07 billion yuan ($3.12 billion) worth of mainland shares in July via Stock Connect, a key cross-border link between the mainland and Hong Kong exchanges.

They sold a net 11.8 billion yuan worth of shares in the Shanghai stock exchange, and 9.27 billion in the Shenzhen stock exchange.
