Hong Kong shares ended 0.25 percent higher on Monday, in line with an upturn on Shanghai's main index.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index climbed 54.08 points to 21,416.50 on turnover of HK$38.49 billion (US$4.97 billion).
The rise was welcome news for the market but trade volume nonetheless slumped to its lowest point since September.
Ben Kwong, chief operating officer at KGI Asia, told the Dow Jones Newswires that investors needed "some story to buy or sell".
"Right now, there is no story... the market as a whole is a non-event," he said.
