BEIJING, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Chinese shares fell back into negative territory on Wednesday despite better-than-expected second-quarter economic growth.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slumped 3.03 percent to close at 3,805.7 points. It dipped more than 4 percent below 3,800 points during the afternoon session before making up ground.

The newly released economic growth rate, which stood at 7 percent in the second quarter and beat a median market forecast of 6.9 percent Comprar Nike Air Max 2018 , failed to buoy the stocks.

The fall extended a retreat seen on Tuesday, when the Shanghai index lost 1.16 percent, reversing a rebound that had lasted for three consecutive trading days before that.

As hundreds of companies that halted trading to avert market plunges have now returned to the market, investors tried to dump previously tied-up shares or lock in profits after three days of rebound, sending stock prices down, analysts said.
