Xi Jinping Effect: Why Alibaba, Nio And Other Chinese Stocks Are Nosediving Today


U.S.-listed Chinese stocks are nosediving in the premarket session on Monday amid fears over President Xi Jinping maintaining dominance following the weeklong Party Congress that concluded on Saturday.

Fears of more stringent regulations are pushing these stocks deeper into the red. The China and Hong Kong market plunged earlier in the day. The Hang Seng Index plummeted to a 13-year low, dropping over 1,000 points before settling at 15,180.69.

Xi, who has won a historic third five-year term, named his key allies to the Politburo standing committee — China’s most powerful political body. He also called for regulating the mechanism of wealth accumulation, with reference to the common prosperity agenda and private capital.
