HONG KONG—The opening of a trading link between the Hong Kong and Shenzhen stock markets met with a muted response from investors.

At the end of the trading day Monday, investors based outside China had piled around 2.71 billion yuan ($393.5 million) into the Shenzhen market—home to some of the country’s fastest-growing companies in sectors like technology, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods—while Chinese investors had put 850 million yuan ($123.4 million) into Hong Kong stocks. Those totals represent 21% and 8%, respectively, of the daily limits for the link known as Stock Connect.
