Hong Kong, Chinese stocks open up | Updated: 8:11:52 PM, Thursday April 25, 2013

Shares in Hong Kong have risen 1.09 per cent in early trade, tracking a strong performance on Wall Street, which was buoyed by solid corporate earnings.

The Hang Seng Index was 237.02 points higher at 22,043.63 in the opening minutes of trade.

Chinese shares were up 0.36 per cent in early trading as well, helped by bargain hunting after gains in US stocks.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index rose 7.82 points to 2,192.36, after a 2.57 per cent fall the previous day on worries over the domestic economy.
