Hong Kong: Stocks end flat, Shanghai up again


[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks ended marginally lower on Friday as another advance in Shanghai was offset by losses on Wall Street and mounting concerns over the crisis in Yemen.

In mainland China, the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index added 0.24 per cent, or 9.00 points, to 3,691.10 on turnover of 509.3 billion yuan. The index has now risen for 12 sessions out of 13, including a 10-day winning streak that ended on Wednesday.

The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, rose 1.12 per cent, or 21.36 points, to 1,935.59 on turnover of 422.7 billion yuan.
