The Hong Kong stock market finished mixed on Wednesday, 14 June 2017, as market participants awaiting the outcome of a US central bank meeting later in the day. While an interest rate rise is widely expected by the Federal Reserve, its statement, and that of its boss Janet Yellen, will be closely inspected for clues about future monetary policy. The market reaction seemed largely muted to weak investment data in China, which reinforced views that the country's economy will start to lose some momentum in coming months.
Sector performance was mixed, with gains were led by information technology stocks, aided by a bounce in the U. S. tech shares, while losses were seen in property and construction stocks. The Hang Seng index rose 0.1%, to 25,875.90 points, while the China Enterprises Index lost 0.1%, to 10,514.91 points. Turnover reduced to HK$76.4 billion from HK$79.9 billion on Tuesday.
