Chinese stocks halt worst losing streak this year

Hong Kong - Chinese stocks in Hong Kong headed for their first gain in seven days as financial companies advanced.

The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index climbed 0.3%, erasing losses. China Minsheng Banking increased the most in three weeks. The Shanghai Composite Index closed little changed after data showed China’s consumer prices rose for a third month, while factory-gate deflation narrowed more than expected.
