Hong Kong stocks close marginally higher

Hong Kong shares finished Wednesday with small gains as investors returned from a typhoon-induced day off to forecast-beating Chinese trade data, though gains were limited by virus concerns.

The Hang Seng Index edged up 0.07%, or 17.41 points, to 24 667.09.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.56%, or 18.97 points, to 3 340.78, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China's second exchange eased 0.60%, or 13.79 points, to 2 290.40.
