  The development of the A-share market has reached another milestone!

According to data disclosed by China Securities Depository and Clearing Corporation Limited, the number of investors in the securities market exceeded 200 million for the first time.

Wind data shows that the number of A-share investors exceeded 100 million in January 2016.

If counted from the opening of the Shanghai Stock Exchange in December 1990, the accumulation of the first 100 million investors took about 26 years.

From January 2016 to the present, the accumulation of the second 100 million investors has only taken 6 years.

  The number of investors exceeded the 200 million mark

  Data disclosed by China Settlement on February 25 shows that since the number of investors exceeded 150 million in March 2019, the number of investors has continued to grow, reaching 200,008,700 by February 25, 2022.

This means that the number of investors exceeded 200 million for the first time.

  According to Wind statistics, the number of investors has experienced a steady growth in recent years.

  In January 2016, the number of investors exceeded 100 million for the first time. Since then, the number of investors has generally increased by more than one million per month, with an increase of more than 2 million per month during the peak period. In March 2019, the number of investors exceeded 150 million for the first time. .

A year ago in February 2021, the number of investors exceeded 180 million for the first time, and now it has officially exceeded the 200 million mark.

In total, the number of investors ranged from 100 million to 200 million over a total of 6 years.

  In recent months, as the growth of the A-share market has slowed down or even adjusted, the number of new investors has shown a downward trend. In October 2021, the number of new investors fell below 1 million, but it has returned to million or more.

  Let's take a look at this year.

On February 18, China Clearing announced the changes in investor data in January.

In January, 1,324,300 new investors were added, and the cumulative number of investors was 198,732,800.

The cumulative number of investors is 200 million, which is still 1.27 million.

  It is worth noting that the number of new investors in January fell by 3.6% month-on-month and 36.77% year-on-year, the highest decline in the past six years.

  Industry insiders said that the large year-on-year drop in new investors in January was mainly due to the previous high base.

In January 2021, the market performance was relatively hot, and the increase was large, which drove the enthusiasm of investors to enter the market.

In that month, 2.09 million new investors were added, which was already a relatively high point for several months at that time.

In January of this year, the market was not very prosperous, and investors were not very active in entering the market.

  Specifically, since 2016, the peaks in the number of new investors in a single month have occurred in March 2016, August 2016, March 2017, March 2019, July 2020, and March 2021. .

Among them, March 2017, March 2019, and July 2020 correspond to the staged highs of the market, and the popularity of the market will also stimulate the enthusiasm of investors to open accounts to a considerable extent.

  It is worth mentioning that, taking March 2019 and July 2020 as an example, the market was in a state of excitement at that time, and many brokerage business departments saw investors queuing up to open accounts.

  Historically, the absolute peak of the number of new investors in the domestic securities market in a single month occurred in the second quarter of 2015, and the total number of new investors in the three-month period from April to June 2015 reached 13.7762 million, with an average of 13.7762 million new investors per month. The monthly increase was 4.592 million, a level far exceeding other months in the history of A-shares.

However, after a brief frenzy of investors flocking to the market, the market ushered in a rapid cooling.
