Hong Kong: Hong Kong and mainland Chinese stocks ended more than one percent down on Thursday as nagging worries about a China-US trade war reversed early bargain-buying.

The Hang Seng Index fell 1.35 percent, or 400.12 points, to close at 29,296.05.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index dropped 1.37 percent, or 39.92 points, to 2,875.81 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China’s second exchange, shed 2.13 percent, or 34.27 points, to 1,578.33.
