[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares sank on Tuesday soon after opening following more losses on Wall Street as traders take profits following a two-week rally, while awaiting policy meetings of the Japanese and US central banks.

The Hang Seng Index eased 0.47 per cent, or 102.55 points, to 21,890.89.

And the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index was marginally lower, dipping 1.79 points to 3,014.04, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, was also slightly down, losing 0.54 points to 2,019.27.
