Shanghai’s new tech board, dubbed the Star Market, has been up and running for a month since it started trading on July 22, and investors generally remain enthusiastic.

On Thursday, the board’s average price-to-earnings (PE) ratio was nearly 90, much higher than the ratio of 42 on Shenzhen’s ChiNext board, which hosts mostly tech companies, according to data from the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges.

In its first month of trading, the Star Market’s turnover totaled nearly 600 billion yuan ($84.6 billion), accounting for about 15.7% of the Shanghai stock market’s total turnover, data from the Shanghai bourse shows.
