Information is not investment advice
China’s tech companies have lost $823 billion in total since their February highs. The losses are huge! What’s the reason? Beijing expands its crackdown on the technology sector and this fact worries investors as the selloff may be far from over.

Support levels are the 200-day moving average of 27,600 and the psychological mark of 27,000.
