Holiday

Until special banking arrangements are established, investors will only be allowed to trade on the other market on days where Hong Kong and Mainland markets are both open for trading, and banking services are available in both Hong Kong and Mainland markets on the corresponding settlement days. This arrangement is essential in ensuring that investors and brokers will have the necessary banking support on the relevant settlement days when they will be required to make payments.
