[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks opened Wednesday sharply higher following another record-breaking close on Wall Street as traders shrugged off a spike in US inflation.

The Hang Seng Index jumped 1.05 per cent or 299.30 points to 28,796.55.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index was flat, inching up 0.55 point to 3,397.02, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China's second exchange added 0.05 per cent or 1 point to 2,188.56.
