Hong Kong: Shares close down as financial and energy firms weigh


[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares finished down on Wednesday as losses in financial and energy stocks undercut gains in Chinese social media and mobile technology firm Tencent .

Tencent released strong third quarter earnings late on Tuesday, but falling oil prices dented energy firms and dragged on the broader market.

The Hang Seng index fell 0.2 per cent, to 22,352.17, while the China Enterprises Index lost 0.7 per cent, to 10,245.53 points.

Total trading volume of companies included in the HSI index was 1.5 billion shares.
