    End of Hong Kong Protests Could Boost China A-Shares ETF

    Strategists see light at the end of the tunnel for the Hong Kong protests, which has been a months-long saga and have been keeping the capital markets on edge with the latest volatility. “I don’t accept this will be a small scale problem in a larger China economy.
