[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares edged down on Friday as investors stayed cautious, with some worrying that good US retail data will cause the Federal Reserve to starting raising interest rates not too far into 2015.

The Hang Seng index fell 0.3 per cent to 23,249.20, while the China Enterprises Index lost 0.2 per cent, to 11,236.39 points.

For the week, both indexes fell 3.1 per cent, posting their biggest weekly losses since mid-March.
