[HONG KONG] Hong Kong equities rose soon after opening on Tuesday, building on a three-day gain and following a strong lead from New York and Europe in response to French moderate Emmanuel Macron's first-round presidential election success.

The Hang Seng Index rose 0.39 per cent, or 94.94 points, to 24,234.42.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index opened down 0.18 per cent, or 5.64 points, at 3,123.89, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged up 0.05 per cent, or 0.91 points, to 1,874.28.
