Hang Seng ends flat, China stocks down
(07-04 16:29)

Hong Kong shares ended flat Friday, with profit-taking wiping out early gains that came in response to a surge in US jobs in June and a record close on Wall Street.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index edged up 14.92 points to 23,546.36 on turnover of HK$53.55 billion.
In China the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.19 percent, or 3.85 points, to 2,059.38 on turnover of 83.6 billion yuan. The index rose 1.12 percent for the week.
The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged down 0.03 percent, or 0.36 points, to 1,113.55 on turnover of 128.6 billion yuan. It gained 2.44 percent over the week. --AFP
