[Hong Kong] Hong Kong shares closed 0.24 per cent higher Monday as better-than-forecast Chinese trade data helped to erase an initial sell-off fuelled by fresh Wall Street losses.

The Hang Seng Index added 54.84 points to 23,143.38 on turnover of HK$67.82 billion (US$8.75 billion).

But in mainland China the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.36 per cent, or 8.53 points, to 2,366.01 on turnover of 175.4 billion yuan (US$28.6 billion).

The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, slipped 0.08 per cent, or 1.13 points, to 1,349.47 on turnover of 202.4 billion yuan. AFP
