Hang Seng ends higher
(59 mins ago)

Hong Kong shares edged up 0.22 percent Wednesday, reversing morning losses as investors brushed off a heavy sell-off on Wall Street that was fueled by weak US data and disappointing corporate reports.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index gained 54.53 points to 24,861.81 on turnover of HK$80.37 billion.
But in mainland China the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.41 percent, or 47.22 points, to 3,305.74 on turnover of 341.6 billion yuan.
The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, lost 0.71 percent, or 11.07 points, to 1,538.86 on turnover of 252.3 billion yuan. --AFP
