The Shanghai stock exchange is one of China’s leading markets, with other significant trading at the Shenzhen stock exchange and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng. By market capitalization, the Shanghai exchange is 5th largest in the world.

Some notable companies that make up the Shanghai composite include the Bank of China, PetroChina, and Tianjin Port.

The Shanghai Composite index calculates the total value of A shares and B shares, available on the stock exchange. A shares are denominated in yuan and are limited to purchase only by Chinese traders. In contrast, B shares are denominated in foreign currencies (Hong Kong Dollar for the Shenzhen and US Dollar for the Shanghai).
