Major equity index provider S&P Dow Jones Indices appears closer to including mainland stocks in its offerings thanks to the market linkup between Shanghai and Hong Kong allowing some stocks at the former to be traded through the latter, The Wall Street Journal reported. David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at the firm, said “I don’t think it’ll be terribly long” until Shanghai’s A-shares are included. S&P Dow Jones will make the decision in September; MSCI recently said it will announce on June 9 whether it will add A-shares to its widely tracked emerging-markets index.
