China Securities Regulatory Commission Investigates Stocks

China’s securities regulator said on Tuesday that it had launched an investigation into Monday’s selloff on the country’s stock markets, as the rout in Chinese equities continued.

In a transcript of a Q&A posted on its website, China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said it was “looking into incidents of share-dumping” on July 27.

China’s benchmark stock market slid 8.5 percent on Monday, suffering its biggest daily loss since 2007. The Shanghai Composite pared some losses during trading Tuesday to end the day down 1.68 percent.
