Tougher Regulation on the Way (2)
These efforts have already paid off. The stock market in 2017 was much steadier compared with the year before. Only three trading days registered changes beyond 2 percent last year， and the fl uctuation ratio of the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index recorded a historical low of 13.98 percent， according to the CSRC.
Zhang Shenfeng， Assistant Chairman of the CSRC， said China would continue to strengthen oversight in the securities market in 2018 to keep it fair， open and impartial.
“The regulator will continue to crack down on violations of securities laws and regulations， including insider trading and market manipulation，” Zhang said.
The CSRC will carry out research and set up an investor compensation fund to better protect investor interests， and will give priority to innovation such as better on-site surveillance and the use of big data to improve effi ciency.
“China will work to ensure that the capital market better serves the real economy， and the capital market will not alter its direction of reform toward market-oriented and law-governed development，” Zhang said.
