Glencore, which lost almost 30 per cent Tuesday on fears about its future as commodity prices sink, was up 12 per cent.

In Shanghai the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index added 0.48 per cent or 14.70 points to 3,052.84, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, gained 0.44 per cent, or 7.47 points, to 1,719.19.
