If past experience is anything to go by, Chinese investors tend to take a cautious approach as Lunar New Year nears given the risk of liquidity stresses in the financial system.

Government officials say China's economy has been generally stable at the start of the year, continuing the momentum from second-half 2016, but also noting a challenging and complicated trade outlook for 2017.

Nearly all main sectors lost ground, led down by material and industry shares.
