SHANGHAI stocks advanced for the third straight day today, led by mines, car makers, and logistics companies.
The Shanghai Composite Index closed 0.20 percent higher to a two-week high of 2,235.57 points, following a 1.2 percent jump yesterday.
The strong investor sentiment was mainly driven by expectations that the Chinese government may soon take measures to stabilize a slowing economy, analysts said.
