China suspends 'circuit breaker' after stock trading halted again


Beijing (AFP)

China will suspend "circuit breakers", Xinhua news agency reported, after the trading curbs were again triggered Thursday when share prices dropped more than seven percent, halting share trading early for the second time this week.

The circuit breaker mechanism, which went into force at the beginning of the year to reduce volatility on China's bourses, will be lifted from Friday, the agency said.
