Hong Kong stocks extend gain

21 March 2016, Nirapad News: Hong Kong stocks kicked on a positive note Monday extending gains from last week’s Federal Reserve statement on lowering its interest rate forecast this year.

The Hang Seng index added 0.3 per cent, to 20,725.15 points.

The Hong Kong China Enterprises Index gained 0.8 per cent, to 8,949.58.

The index measuring price differences between dual-listed companies in Shanghai and Hong Kong stood at 134.98.

A value above 100 indicates Shanghai shares are pricing at a premium to shares in the same company trading in Hong Kong, and vice versa.

The northbound quota for the Hong Kong-Shanghai Stock Connect, currently set at 13 billion yuan, saw net inflows of 0.73 billion yuan.

Total trading volume of companies included in the HSI index was 0.8 billion shares, according to Reuters.
