Hong Kong: Shares, unlike mainland ones, close higher

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - 16:19

Hong Kong stocks rallied Friday, ending a volatile month on a high, after Japan announced a surprise negative interest rate policy, effectively charging banks to store their cash in a bid to kickstart lending in the country.

[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares finished higher on Wednesday, bucking sliding onshore markets as bargain hunters sought attractively-priced shares.

The Hang Seng index rose 1.0 per cent, to 19,052.45, while the China Enterprises Index gained 0.8 per cent, to 7,959.51 points.
