News Hour:

Hong Kong stocks edged up slightly in the first few minutes of trade on Tuesday but investors remain on edge after North Korea’s nuclear test at the weekend ramped up geopolitical tensions. The Hang Seng Index added 0.17 percent, or 48.21 points, to 27,788.47.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index inched down 0.07 percent, or 2.38 points, to 3,377.20 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China’s second exchange, eased 0.05 percent, or 1.06 points, to 1,967.06, reports BSS.
