Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index has pared initial gains and is down 0.1% amid cautious trades. 

Why Is It Moving? The Hang Seng Index drifted lower as Beijing intensified its crackdown on the tech industry. Worries about an economic slowdown in China also weighed on the market.

Chinese regulators summoned 11 ride-hailing companies, including DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE: DIDI), on Wednesday and demanded they cease “disorderly expansion” and rectify industry excesses.

Shares of Chinese companies closed mixed in U.S. trading on Wednesday after the major U.S. indexes closed on opposite sides of the unchanged line. Alibaba closed 3.8% higher, while electric vehicle maker Nio Inc.’s (NYSE: NIO) shares closed almost 0.6% lower.

The Chinese electric vehicle stocks are seeing weakness over August deliveries falling short of investor expectations.
