A probe by authorities into China’s largest brokerage, Citic Securities, has found evidence that the firm used advanced knowledge of state-directed share purchases made during the government’s attempted stock market rescue to execute trades that would benefit the firm, Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed sources.
