Hang Seng slumps on first day after Chinese New Year
(02-04 16:35)

Hong Kong shares plunged 2.89 percent on Tuesday, in line with a regional sell-off after heavy losses on Wall Street sparked by weaker-than-expected US manufacturing data.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index lost 637.65 points to end at 21,397.77 on turnover of HK$75.69 billion.
