(Yicai  Global) March 17 -- China's mainland stock markets began the trading  day upbeat even if the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500  Index extended their stretches into bear market territory overnight as  global investors worry about their leaders' slow response to the Covid-19 pandemic that is already subsiding in China.

The  Shanghai Composite Index opened 0.25 percent higher at 2,796.28. The  Shenzhen Component Index climbed 0.83 percent to 10,337.92. The ChiNext  Price Index, which tracks growth enterprises listed in Shenzhen, started  the day 1.59 percent stronger at 1,941.20.
