Hong Kong - Hong Kong stocks finally rose on Monday after five straight losses, with energy firms boosted by a rally last week in oil prices, while investors were also buoyed by news that Donald Trump's tax cuts had moved a step closer.

The Hang Seng Index added 0.22% to close at 29 138.28.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.24% to 3 309.62 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, fell 0.72% to 1 902.91.
