Hong Kong stocks open with minor gains


HONG KONG, Aug 10, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Hong Kong stocks kicked off marginally
higher Friday after four days of gains but investors were shifting gingerly
as the China-US trade war dampens optimism.

The Hang Seng Index inched up 7.43 points to 28,614.73.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slid 0.11 percent, or 2.98 points,
to 2,791.40 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China’s
second exchange, dipped 0.55 points to 1,505.09.
