Financial regulation resources

Hi all,

Having just muddled through HSK5, I was turning my thoughts back to professional vocabulary and content. Does anyone know where to find links to financial laws, regulations, financial markets and related news? I know I need to practice Chinese search skills, but looking for short cuts as usual.

Publications in many languages are a useful way to study also, trying to figure which publish in Chinese.

If you are in the US or otherwise outside the Great Firewall of China (which you should be in Hong Kong, right?), you can use Google News, add news in Chinese from mainland China and Taiwan to your Google News start page, and then save a search with 经济 and and another with 金融.

 

You can refine your searches from there, but you'll get daily articles.  Study those for a week (especially importing into Imron's Chinese Text Analyser, and you'll have all the vocab down in a jiffy, and grammar patterns and set phrases/descriptions for that industry memorized pretty soon after.

 

You can also search for 投资, 股票, or other financial terms to widen the industry/jargon net, 经济 and 金融 will almost certainly spread your search far enough.

Start with shorter articles from the above sources, as well as finance sections of 百度新闻 and other aggregators. My personal favourite is 经济参考报, which does its own reporting but also republishes from other sources.

 

You'll also want to spend some time on the PBOC, CBRC, etc official websites, where new policies are being published regularly. A hot topic recently is the latest edition of the 中国金融稳定报告.

You could also try reading the announcements of your favourite listed companies. I can't think of a better way to improve your financial/ accounting vocabulary than having to review the notes to a financial statement or the terms of a securities offer.

I find the markets section of the FT's Chinese website useful http://www.ftchinese.com/channel/markets.html ... but because much of it is translated from English the language does have a slightly foreign flavour -- however good for easier reading, vocab building etc.

 

Edit: To get the English version, just add /en to the end of each story's address -- assuming it's been translated from English.

and /ce to get the two versions side by side.

Used to be able to click a link to achieve the same, they seem to have hidden that now.
