Hong Kong: Hong Kong shares edged up on Thursday, boosted by a rebound in technology firms after a recent sell-off though gains were tempered as energy firms were hit by an overnight dive in oil prices.

The Hang Seng Index rose 0.28 percent, or 78.39 points to close at 28,303.19.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.67 percent, or 21.91 points, to 3,272.05 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, fell 0.60 percent, or 11.23 points, to 1,868.42.
