With the Shanghai Composite back into a technical bull market Thursday, traders and analysts have been contemplating whether the time is right to gain exposure to Chinese stocks after a rollercoaster year.
China's key Shanghai Composite trimmed gains on Thursday afternoon to close up 1.9 percent. From its low on August 26 it has now rallied 20.34 percent, entering a technical bull market. The Shanghai bourse also hit an intra-day high of 3,585 points Thursday, its highest level since August 21.
"The bulls are back in the China shop," Brenda Kelly, the head analyst at London Capital Group, told CNBC via email on Thursday.
