China’s stocks rose the most in a week after the government delayed tightening bank capital rules and investors speculated monetary policy will be eased to limit the effects of Europe’s debt crisis on the economy.
Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd. and China Vanke Co. led gains for lenders and developers after regulators postponed stricter rules until the beginning of next year in a move that may bolster loan growth. China Cosco Holdings Co., the biggest shipping company, advanced as European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said officials stand ready to act as the euro region’s outlook worsens. The stock market’s gains were limited before Chinese data this weekend that may show a deepening slowdown in the world’s second’s biggest economy.
