[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks staged a mild recovery Tuesday after a sharp two-day sell-off, but traders remain concerned that Donald Trump's big-spending policies could fan inflation and send interest rates soaring.

The Hang Seng Index added 0.46 per cent, or 101.69 points, to end at 22,323.91.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index shed 0.11 per cent, or 3.38 points, to 3,206.99, but the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, rose 0.48 per cent, or 10.10 points, to 2,124.40 on turnover of 363.7 billion yuan.
