Hong Kong halts day’s share trading due to typhoon

The Hong Kong stock exchange halted trading for the full day on Wednesday as a strong typhoon lashed the financial centre and other parts of southern China.

Trading was suspended for the rest of the day in the securities market, including Stock Connect trading with mainland Chinese markets, and the derivatives market, as the highest level typhoon warning No. 10 was still in force at noon, according to the exchange's trading rules for bad weather. Morning trading had also been suspended, reports Reuters.

Hundreds of flights and other transport services were cancelled, and schools and most businesses in the city were expected to be closed for the better part of the day as the city was buffetted by Hato.
