[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks jumped 0.85 per cent in opening exchanges on Thursday after minutes from the Federal Reserve's latest policy meeting showed it is wary about raising US interest rates too soon.

The Hang Seng Index added 198.02 points to 23,461.35 in the first few minutes, following a Fed-fuelled rally on Wall Street. - AFP
