As many readers may be aware, China is set to open up its Shanghai-listed shares to foreign investors for the first time ever on Monday, via the landmark “Hong Kong-Shanghai Stock Connect” program. But now that you can buy yuan-denominated stocks in Shanghai, what should you buy? And what should you avoid?

Five top investment banks are offering strategies on playing the Stock Connect’s grand opening, and MarketWatch has assembled their advice for your perusal. Some of the picks are among the newly available Shanghai yuan stocks — known as “A-shares” — while others are Hong Kong-listed H-shares which, although long available to non-Chinese investors, also offer a chance to invest in the Stock Connect.
