The Shanghai Composite slides 1.3% to close below 2,000 for the first time since the early days of 2009, and now off 42% from a mid-2009 peak. Volume remains anemic as well - by one measure the slowest since early 2008. Are things getting too cheap? Mainland-listed A-shares are trading at their biggest discout to their Hong Kong-listed peers since June 2011.
