US-based investment bank Morgan Stanley, one of the biggest foreign investors in China’s real estate sector, is looking to sell two high-profile blocks of Shanghai luxury residences, prompting speculation that the market has reached its peak, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Yesterday, a government agency said an index of home prices in 70 major cities posted its first month-on-month reduction in August, including a 0.2% drop in Shanghai.
