On Wednesday, the Chinese mainland’s total stock market capitalization stood at $5.79 trillion, while Apple’s market value climbed to $1.09 trillion in the wake of the launch of its latest iPhones.

The mainland’s stock market slid into bear territory in June amid weak domestic growth and ongoing trade frictions with the U.S. Its current market capitalization is worth about half of its peak value of more than $10 trillion in June 2015.

Earlier this week, Hong Kong stocks also entered a bear market. The benchmark Hang Seng Index is down more than 20% from a recent high in January.
