Hong Kong Stocks End Firmer on Trump Softer Tones on Trade (Review)
Thursday, 16 May 2019 03:55 WIB | MARKET UPDATE |HONGKONG IndeksHangSengShanghai composite

Hong Kong stocks rebounded to close higher on Wednesday as weak economic data from China reinforced expectations that Beijing will roll out more stimulus, while a slight softening in rhetoric from U.S. President Donald Trump eased trade worries.

The Hang Seng index ended up 0.5% at 28,268.71, while the China Enterprises Index gained 0.4% to 10,804.14 points.

Growth in China™s industrial output slowed more than expected to 5.4% in April from a year earlier, pulling back from a surprising strong 4-1/2-year high of 8.5% in March. Retail sales were also worse than expected, with the headline number rising 7.2%, the slowest pace since May 2003.
