Of the 4,398 stocks on Mainland China, there were 2,843 (65%) gainers, 1,370 (31%)  losers, and 171 (4%)  remained unchanged.

A total of 110 stocks hit the max limit up while 6 touched the fall limit. The CSRC set maximum 10% rise and 10% fall of a stock in a single day for all A-shares except those on the STAR Market and ChiNext board which are allowed a 20% rise or fall in a single day. These prevent stocks from being traded for the rest of the day once hitting the rise or fall limit to curb extreme volatilities in either direction.
