As for the reasons for the Hong Kong stock market to rise and fall, analysts believe that, on the one hand, after the recent continuous rise in Hong Kong stocks, there has been a demand for adjustment. Investors began to re-examine the Fed’s prospects for raising interest rates after fears that the Fed might maintain its tightening policy for a longer period of time.
In addition, although the “New Ten Measures” for epidemic prevention in the Mainland have relaxed local epidemic prevention restrictions, there is still no change in the cross-border policy. Further adjustments may have to wait until the first wave of infection peaks has passed, depending on the situation.

CITIC Securities: From the second quarter of next year, Hong Kong stocks are expected to enter a stage of valuation increase
The CITIC Securities Research Report pointed out that with the gradual reversal of overseas investors’ expectations of mainland policies, foreign capital is expected to continue to return to Hong Kong stocks in 2023. Looking forward to 2023, the further optimization of the mainland’s epidemic prevention policies and the gradual resolution of superimposed real estate credit risks will jointly drive the gradual stabilization of economic fundamentals and improve the risk appetite of investors in the Hong Kong stock market. After the expected recession from the current period to the first quarter of next year, Hong Kong stocks are expected to enter a stage of valuation uplift from the second quarter. As the domestic economic recovery accelerates in the second half of the year, Hong Kong stocks are expected to usher in a double restoration of valuation and performance.
