Jan 23 (Reuters) - New York-listed shares of Chinese companies bounced back on Tuesday after a dour start to the year, after a report of a rescue package for the slumping domestic stock market buoyed sentiment.

Chinese domestic stocks rose from multi-year lows earlier in the day on hopes of the rescue package and Beijing's pledge to stabilize market confidence.
