Hong Kong stocks open higher on trade hopes

Jan 18 2019 09:06

Hong Kong stocks rose in the opening few minutes of trade on Friday, tracking a healthy lead from Wall Street fuelled by a report the US was considering easing tariffs on Chinese goods as part of a drive to reach a trade deal.

The Hang Seng Index climbed 0.89% to 26 993.44.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index added 0.32% to open at 2 567.74, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, was 0.12% up at 1 310.69.
