The SSE 50, comprising the largest listed firms by market capitalisation in Shanghai, is also lower by 0.23%.

Elsewhere, the CSI 300 and 500 indices, consisting of the 300 and 500 largest firms listed in Shanghai and Shenzhen, are mixed. The 300 has fallen 0.19% while the 500 is higher by 0.22%.

Trading will get back under way at 3pm AEST.
