Hong Kong shares close tad higher, helped by calmer mainland market

Hong Kong stocks ended modestly higher on Tuesday, helped by calmer trading in mainland China after a sharp fall in the previous session.


The Hang Seng index rose 0.4 percent, to 21,999.62, while the China Enterprises Index was unchanged at 9,788.91 points.


Most sectors ended the session firmer, but trading was thin with many players away for year-end holidays.


China’s major stock indexes ended 0.9 percent higher, recouping some of their more than 2 percent slide on Monday.
