Hong Kong: Hong Kong stocks ended down for the third day in a row on Wednesday on concerns about a crackdown on speculative trading by authorities in China's markets, while most energy firms retreated with oil prices.

The Hang Seng Index fell 0.19 percent, or 57.02 points to close at 29,623.83.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.13 percent, or 4.20 points, to 3,337.86 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged up 0.04 percent, or 0.74 points, to 1,919.06.
