[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks eased 0.22 per cent on Thursday following Wall Street losses but mainland markets rallied after another weak reading on Chinese manufacturing activity raised hopes for further stimulus measures by Beijing.

The benchmark Hang Seng Index fell 61.33 points to close at 27,523.72.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index jumped 1.87 per cent, or 83.13 points, to 4,529.42.
