SHANGHAI -- Beijing hopes to lure foreign investors through linkage of the Hong Kong and Shenzhen stock markets, but achieving the level of market liberalization that can earn their full trust remains a distant goal.

Once the cross-trading is allowed, as early as December, investors on both sides will gain access to up to 880 stocks listed in Shenzhen, including the startup market ChiNext, as well as up to 417 Hong Kong stocks.
