Shenzhen A-share trading hours are divided into: open collection auction period (9: 15-9: 25), continuous auction period (9: 30-11: 30 and 13: 00-14: 57), closing auction period 14: 57-15: 00); the trading hours of the shares traded in the shares traded in Hong Kong by investors shall be governed by the relevant requirements of the Stock Exchange as follows: (Attached)
Sixth, "half-day market" special arrangements. There is also a rather special "half-day market" in the Hong Kong stock market. That is, on Christmas Eve (December 24), New Year's Eve (December 31) and Lunar New Year's Eve (last day of the Lunar New Year), the Hong Kong market Have a half day deal. If the day is the trading day of the Stock Connect, the Hong Kong stock exchange on that day will also be traded for only half a day.

However, different quotes software market quotations trend color can be reset, investors in the use of quotes software, you should carefully check the software parameter settings, to avoid the risk of inertia thinking.
Eight is the risk warning and delisting system differences. Shenzhen A shares in the presence of short positions before the introduction of warning signs (for example, ST, * ST and other marks), to prompt investors to invest in risk and delisting arrangements for the delisting finishing period, the stock can still enter the delisting The National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NYSE: SZSE) was listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.
