Hang Seng ends directionless
(08-18 16:33)

Hong Kong stocks closed flat Monday after worse-than-expected Chinese economic data was balanced by gains for telecoms companies.
A report showed China's foreign direct investment slumped to a two-year low, adding to a series of downbeat data about the world's second largest economy.
The Hang Seng Index ended up 0.52 points at 24,955.46 on turnover of HK$69.68 billion.
The Shanghai Composite Index rose 0.57 percent, or 12.74 points, to 2,239.47 -- its highest close since December 5 last year -- on turnover of 141.5 billion yuan.
The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, jumped 1.46 percent, or 17.55 points, to 1,218.73 on turnover of 180.1 billion yuan. --AFP
