The Chinese and Hong Kong regulators have approved a long-awaited plan to connect the Hong Kong and Shanghai stock exchanges.

The move will allow investors to trade across the border for the first time and is set to begin on 17 November.

Till now, foreign access to China’s stock markets is closely managed, mainly through a quota program for institutions that represents a sliver of the overall market.

It will give global investors access to Chinese stocks from Hong Kong, potentially resulting in $3.8bn worth of trades per day.
