HONG KONG: Hong Kong stocks were flat at the open Thursday as investors took a breather after the previous day’s surge that was fuelled by the government agreeing to a key demand of campaigners after months of sometimes violent protests.

The Hang Seng Index inched down 10.37 points to 26,512.86.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.52 percent, or 15.25 points, to 2,972.66 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China’s second exchange, rose 0.51 percent, or 8.34 points, to 1,644.74.
