BEIJING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese stocks ended Friday with smaller gains after a strong rally on Thursday on improved manufacturing data.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index went up 0.6 percent, or 12.62 points, to close at 2,117.05, while the Shenzhen Component Index closed at 8,679.68, up 16.54 points, or 0.19 percent.

Combined turnover on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges retreated to 105.46 billion yuan (16.74 billion U.S. dollars) from 119.2 billion yuan the previous trading day.X Gainers outnumbered losers by 635 to 262 in Shanghai and by 888 to 561 in Shenzhen.
