Friday, June 23, 2017 - 10:36


[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks edged up in the first few minutes of trade Friday but gains were tempered by ongoing weakness in energy firms after oil prices plunged this week.

The Hang Seng index added 0.07 per cent, or 18.02 points, to 25,692.55.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.29 per cent, or 9.01 points, to 3,138.44 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, shed 0.17 per cent, or 3.15 points, to 1,859.69.
