Chinese Stock Market Rebounds a Bit
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
The business news starts with a partial recovery in Asia.
(Soundbite of music)
INSKEEP: Investors in China bought some bargains today after yesterday's big sell-off. The Shanghai stock market's main price index recovered nearly four percent. Now yesterday, it dropped almost nine percent, rattling investors around the world. But stock markets in other parts of Asia were not so ready to bounce back today. Leading indices in Tokyo and Hong Kong continue to fall.
