Hong Kong stocks halt five-day losing streak

Tencent, AIA, HSBC support market; H-share index falls fourth straight day

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Hong Kong's main stock index rose for the first time in six days on Thursday, as heavyweights Tencent Holdings and AIA Group found buying support even as Chinese companies listed in the city fell on the back of losses in mainland equity markets.

The Hang Seng Index added 0.4% to 30,451.27 after a choppy trading session during which it briefly flirted with losses. Southbound inflows over the trading links connecting Hong Kong with Shanghai and Shenzhen turned positive on Thursday, lending some support to local stocks.
