While Europe had a robust session, Wall Street showed a bit more restraint following a surge triggered by Friday’s lower-than-expected US employment figures, which intensified expectations for a Federal Reserve interest rate reduction. 

Hong Kong resumed its upward trajectory after closing marginally lower on Tuesday, breaking a 10-day winning streak. The Hang Seng Index retreated by 0.4% to 18,410.20 during the local noon trading break, after initially rising by as much as 0.7% earlier in the day. Concurrently, the tech index experienced a 0.6% decline, and the Shanghai Composite index dropped by 0.4%.

Alibaba, a leading e-commerce group, saw a 1.2% decline to HK$77.15, while the food delivery platform Meituan experienced a 1.1% loss, closing at HK$114.20. Tencent also weakened by 0.9% closing at HK$11.40, and New World Developments slipped by 2.7% to HK$8.67, emerging as the top losers. 

Meanwhile, Japanese stocks closed lower on Wednesday, with declines in the Transport, Marine Transport, and Warehousing sectors contributing to the overall downturn. The Nikkei 225 went down by 1.6%, closing at 38,202.37.
