The exchanges have been stopped several times for fears of speculation. The Shenzhen Stock Exchange will launch a special index for the electronic market.

Shenzhen (AsiaNews / Agencies) - The stock of ChiNext, the Nasdaq-style stock market took off this morning at the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, raising at least twice the share prices of the 28 titles on the list.
