The Shenzhen Component Index shed 0.12 percent to close at 8,455.55 points, while the Nasdaq-style ChiNext enterprise board reversed losses during the afternoon session and ended 0.59 percent higher at 1,443.69, lifted by software makers and national defense stocks.

The Shanghai index recorded a cumulative monthly decline of 5.25 percent in August.
