Shanghai (2)

Shares in China continued to fall on Tuesday after trading resumed following a temporary suspension on Monday.

Shares fell by 7% early on Monday, triggering a new system which suspends trading to limit volatile trading. When the market re-opened on Tuesday, it was another day of turbulent trading. The Shanghai Composite index fell as much as 3% before closing 1.5% down.

To combat falling prices, the China Securities Regulatory Commission said it could consider implementing restrictions on how much major shareholders can sell during a certain period.

The country's central bank made the surprise move of injecting 130 billion yuan (£13.55bn) into the market to keep borrowing costs low. But that did little to boost the mood of shareholders.
