Hong Kong: Stocks open down on Wednesday

Published Wed, Nov 2, 2022 · 09:48 AM

HONG KONG and Shanghai stocks started on Wednesday (Nov 2) morning slightly lower after a surge a day earlier that was fuelled by an unverified statement saying China was forming a committee to discuss rolling back some of its painful zero-Covid measures.

The Hang Seng Index slipped 0.43 per cent, or 65.72 points, to 15,389.55.

The Shanghai Composite Index edged down 0.29 per cent, or 8.55 points, to 2,960.65, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China’s second exchange eased 0.21 per cent, or 4.17 points, to 1,938.19. AFP
