Reason for decline

On Wednesday, a Chinese central banker said that the online brokerages that are not licensed in China are conducting illegal business if they serve Chinese clients via the internet. Sun Tianqi, head of the Financial Stability Department of the People’s Bank of China, said that cross-border online brokerages are driving in China without the driver’s license and hence, are conducting illegal financial activities. After the announcement, the companies like FUTU are at the risk of facing regulatory issues in near future. Fearing the outcome, FUTU stock has faced a sharp dip in the share market.
