Hong Kong - Hong Kong shares slipped from a 17-month high on Tuesday, led by financial counters as turnover dropped ahead of the two-day meeting at which the US Federal Reserve meeting is expected to start cutting its stimulus.
The Hang Seng Index, which on Monday had its highest close since May 22, fell 0.3 percent to 23,180.5 points.
The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong inched up 0.4 percent.
Wing Hang Bank surged 39.4 percent, its biggest daily gain since listing in 1993, after becoming the second Hong Kong family-run bank to receive a takeover offer in as many months. Its jump lifted rivals' shares. - Reuters
