The Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE; Chinese: 深圳证券交易所) is a stock exchange based in the city of Shenzhen, in the Peoples Republic of China. It is one of two stock exchanges operating independently in Mainland China, the other being the larger Shanghai Stock Exchange. It is situated in the Futian district of Shenzhen.[3] With a market capitalization of its listed companies around US$2.504 trillion in 2019, it is the 9th largest stock exchange in the world, and 4th largest in East Asia and Asia.


On December 1, 1990, Shenzhen Stock Exchange was founded.[4] In January 1992, Deng Xiaopings Southern Tour saved Chinas capital market and the two stock exchanges (the other is Shanghai Stock Exchange).[5][6] In July 1997, the State Council of China decided that the Shenzhen Stock Exchange would be directly managed by the China Securities Regulatory Commission.[7][8] In May 2004, the SME Board was launched.[4] In October 2009, the ChiNext market (Chinese: 创业板) was inaugurated.[4]

Many of the companies within this market are subsidiaries of companies in which the Chinese government maintains controlling interest.


The exchange has pre-market sessions from 09:15am to 09:25am and normal trading sessions from 09:30am to 12:30pm and 1:00pm to 3:00pm China Standard Time (UTC+08:00) on all days of the week except Saturdays, Sundays and holidays declared by the Exchange in advance.[9][10]


The exchange opened the ChiNext board (Chinese: 创业板),[11] a NASDAQ-type exchange for high-growth, high-tech start-ups, on October 23, 2009.[12]
