HK market rises at open, powered by overseas gains

Hong Kong stocks opened higher on Tuesday, extending the previous day’s gains as global markets resumed their upward trend after last week’s volatility.

The Hang Seng Index rose 0.7 percent to 27,694.

The Shanghai Composite index was barely moved, inching 0.25 points lower to 3,547, while the Shenzhen Composite Index edged down 0.1 percent to 2,483. (AFP)
