[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks rose again Monday, chalking up a sixth consecutive advance following another record close on Wall Street that was fuelled by forecast-beating US data.

The Hang Seng Index added 0.66 per cent, or 143.93 points, to 21,803.18.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.35 percent, or 10.74 points, to 3,043.56 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, lost 0.53 per cent, or 10.85 points, to 2,027.88.
