Hong Kong: Stocks kick off Monday’s session with losses

HONG Kong stocks began Monday on the back foot as traders returned from a long weekend break to play catch-up with losses across Asia at the end of last week, with fears of a recession the key driver of selling.

The Hang Seng Index fell 0.77 per cent, or 169.11 points, to 21,690.68. 

The Shanghai Composite Index shed 0.17 per cent, or 5.82 points, to 3,381.82, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China’s second exchange slipped 0.23 per cent, or 5.08 points, to 2,214.33. AFP
