[SHANGHAI] China stocks reversed early losses and ended higher on Monday, as the market regained its footing after being hit by anxiety stemming from the deadly attacks in Paris.

Morning sentiment was also weak also because regulators tightened margin financing requirements over the weekend, but some investors who missed the recent rally used the correction as a chance for bargain hunting.

The CSI300 index of the largest listed companies in Shanghai and Shenzhen rose 0.5 per cent, to 3,764.13, while the Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.7 per cent, to 3,606.96 points.
