Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index is up 0.3% at the time of writing, extending gains for a third straight session.

Why Is It Moving? The Hang Seng Index is advancing after China’s trade data released on Tuesday showed that the country’s exports grew more than expected in August. In addition, the Chinese government reassured investors on supporting the private sector despite the regulatory crackdowns.

Shares of Chinese companies closed notably higher in U.S. trading on Tuesday even as the major U.S. averages ended mixed in a cautious session as investors continued to weigh an increase in COVID-19 deaths nationwide.

Alibaba’s shares closed almost 2.9% higher, while electric vehicle maker Nio Inc. (NYSE: NIO) closed 0.5% higher.
