Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index opened lower on Friday after four straight days of gains and is down 0.8% at the time of writing.

Why Is It Moving? The Hang Seng Index declined amid worries about Beijing’s intensified crackdown on the tech industry. Investors also turned cautious as they looked ahead to the release of the U.S. Labor Department’s closely watched monthly jobs report later in the day.

Shares of Chinese companies closed mixed in U.S. trading on Thursday even as the three major U.S. indexes closed higher.

Alibaba’s shares closed 0.7% lower, while Nio Inc.’s (NYSE: NIO) closed almost 3.3% higher even as the electric vehicle maker’s August delivery numbers grossly underperformed those of Xpeng and Li Auto.
