Hang Seng Index unchanged in light Fri trading
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index was little changed in a trading week interrupted by holidays.
Markets in Hong Kong resumed trading today following a five-day weekend, while those in China remain closed for the Lunar New Year holiday.
Financial markets in mainland China will resume trading on Monday after a week long Chinese New Year holiday.
The Hang Seng Index was down just 7.18 points (or 0.04%) at 20,431.96 points.
After five straight days of gains, some profit taking would not be unexpected.
