The first batch of qualified market markers on STAR will start trading next week, which will cut investors’ trading cost, and improve pricing efficiency, the bourse said in a statement on its website.
The STAR Market, home to some of China’s biggest chipmakers, biotech companies and high-end manufactures, is tasked with funding Beijing’s tech innovation amid growing Sino-U.S. rivalry.
The Shanghai Stock Exchange said it will continue to improve market mechanisms to help China achieve tech independency and self-sufficiency.
Regulators have approved 14 brokerages as the first batch of market makers, which actively quote in stocks, providing liquidity and depth to the market.
They include Industrial Securities, Guotai Junan Securities and Sinolink Securities.
