Hong Kong shares jumped nearly 2 per cent on Tuesday, their biggest one-day percentage gain in almost three weeks, as investors responded positively to news that the yuan would be granted global reserve currency status.

[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks rose 0.15 per cent in early trading on Friday, as dealers weighed the impact of China's yuan devaluation and the timing of a US interest rate rise.

The benchmark Hang Seng Index added 36.22 points to 24,055.02 in opening deals.
