The Hong Kong stock market ended higher on Wednesday, 30 November 2016, as risk sentiments buoyed by tracking gains in Wall Street overnight and ahead of next week's unveiling of the much-anticipated Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, which will offer foreign individual investors access to the tech-heavy Shenzhen market for the first time. Investors apparently took heart from brisk U. S. economic indicators, including an upward revision to gross domestic product data for July-September.
But gains were capped as investors remained cautious ahead of an OPEC meeting and Italy's referendum result. Most sectors in Hong Kong rose, with telecommunication shares among the best performers, while energy and the raw materials sector suffered the most damage. The Hang Seng Index ended up 0.23%, or 52.70 points, to 22,789.77 while the Hang Seng China Enterprises index fell 0.08%, or 8.15 points, to 9,838.06. Turnover increased to HK$88.9 billion from HK$68.7 billion on Tuesday.
