In mainland China the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slid 0.22 per cent, or 7.29 points, to 3,241.19 on turnover of 328.3 billion yuan (US$52.4 billion). The index lost 2.09 per cent over the week.

The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, dropped 1.55 per cent, or 26.00 points, to 1,651.77 on turnover of 314.9 billion yuan. It rose 1.33 per cent for the week.
