The Hong Kong stock market advanced on Friday, 25 November 2016, partly aided by steady money inflows from China as a cross-border link will be launched soon. The Thanksgiving break in the United States also helped slow a relentless surge in the U. S. dollar that has sucked capital out of most emerging markets.
The market has witnessed relatively strong inflows from Chinese investors via the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, as a sister investment link connecting Hong Kong and Shenzhen will be launched soon. Most sectors rose, with financial and consumer related stocks leading the gains. The Hang Seng Index ended up 0.51%, or 114.96 points, to 22,723.45 and the Hang Seng China Enterprises index added 1.15%, or 111.46 points, to 9,9790.23. Turnover increased to HK$56.2 billion from HK$55.8 billion on Thursday.
