Hong Kong stocks ended barely changed on Thursday, as most Asian markets stabilised after jitters over Turkey's downing of a Russian fighter jet abated.

[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks slumped 2.38 per cent on Wednesday, after another devaluation of China's currency and weak data aggravated fears of a worsening economic slowdown.

The benchmark Hang Seng Index dropped 582.19 points to end the day at 23,916.02 on turnover of HK$102.99 billion (S$18.7 billion).
