Hong Kong Shares snap 3-day Long Streak

Hong Kong shares snapped a three-day losing streak on Thursday, bolstered by financial and energy sectors after taking the brunt of this week’s sell-off, and ahead of a slew of China data over the next few days.

The Hang Seng Index ended up 1.32 percent at 20,900.73. The China Enterprises Index of top mainland listings in Hong Kong closed up 1.75 percent at 11,168.5.

The Shanghai Composite Index finished up 1.06 percent at 2,420.28 in lacklustre turnover, with Chinese oil majors among the top boosts, according to Reuters.
