[HONG KONG] Shares rose in Hong Kong during the first few minutes of trade Tuesday following the previous day's sell-off as traders cling to hopes Donald Trump will still be able to push through key economic reforms despite the failure of his healthcare bill.

The Hang Seng Index added 0.56 per cent, or 135.47 points, to 24,329.17.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index was marginally lower, dipping 1.33 points to 3,265.63 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged 0.07 per cent, or 1.49 points, lower to 2,037.92.
