Hong Kong stocks ended barely changed on Thursday, as most Asian markets stabilised after jitters over Turkey's downing of a Russian fighter jet abated.

[HONG KONG] Stock markets in Shanghai and Hong Kong gave up early gains to end lower Monday as dealers await fresh Chinese economic data this week, amid fears weak figures will spark more turmoil.
