Hong Kong stocks build on gains at open

HONG KONG, Dec 14, 2017 (BSS/AFP) – Hong Kong stocks pushed ahead with
gains at the open of trade Thursday as investors took their cue from another
Wall Street record after an upbeat assessment of the US economy by the
Federal Reserve.

The Hang Seng Index rose 0.29 percent, or 85.92 points, to 29,308.02.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index was barely moved, inching down 0.11
points to 3,302.93, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks
on China’s second exchange, eased 1.07 points to 1,914.70.
