[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks soared 3.80 per cent on Wednesday, in the first day of trade after an extended weekend holiday as investors piled into the market as weak US jobs data dampened expectations for an early Federal Reserve rate hike.

The benchmark Hang Seng Index jumped 961.22 points to 26,236.86 on huge turnover of HK$250.03 billion.
