SHANGHAI -- Shanghai and Shenzhen shares have a greater chance at joining a major emerging-market stock index after recent market reforms, though a smaller pool of issues under consideration means entrance will do less than investors and China's government would like.

MSCI of the U.S. is soliciting institutional investors' input on whether to include A-shares, or yuan-denominated shares listed on the Chinese mainland, in its Emerging Markets Index. Citigroup gives China's bid a 51% chance of success, in light of recent reforms.
