Hong Kong and Chinese shares fell on Tuesday as investors ignored a rally on Wall Street ahead of the release of Chinese first quarter growth data.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong lost 1.60 percent, or 367.54 points, to 22,671.26 on turnover of HK$63.61 billion (US$8.20 billion).
Wall Street provided a positive lead after last week's heavy losses on concerns about tech plays. The Dow rallied 0.91 percent and the S&P 500 gained 0.82 percent, while the Nasdaq, which lost more than three percent last week, added 0.57 percent.
