China may tighten trading halt rules to win over MSCI

HONG KONG -- China's main stock exchanges are likely to implement tougher restrictions on voluntary trading suspensions, potentially addressing a gap with the international norm as stock index provider MSCI decides whether to add shares traded on the mainland to its emerging-market index.

The Shanghai and Shenzhen exchanges will announce new rules on trading halts as soon as next week, the China Securities Journal reported Tuesday, citing a source at the Shanghai bourse. A cap on the length of suspensions for asset restructuring is under consideration, according to the Wednesday edition of the Hong Kong Economic Times.
