An exchange-traded fund tracking shares of large Chinese companies traded in Hong Kong has posted its longest losing streak since 2012.
The iShares China Large Cap ETF (FXI) closed more than 2 percent lower Thursday. That marks 11 straight days of decline for the first time since a 13-day losing streak ended May 18, 2012.
The prolonged sell-off comes amid escalation in a tit-for-tat trade dispute between the U.S. and China.
President Donald Trump said late Monday that he has asked the U.S. trade representative to identify $200 billion worth of Chinese goods for an additional 10 percent tariff. The announcement followed China's announcement of planned tariffs on $50 billion worth of U.S. goods on Friday, in retaliation against the Trump administration's list of duties on $50 billion of Chinese goods released earlier that day. A portion of those tariffs are initially set to take effect July 6.
