Sept 9 (Reuters) - Hong Kong stocks ended lower on

the Wall Street.

was China Mengniu Dairy Co Ltd, which fell 3.99%.
** Tech shares led the declines. The Hang Seng tech index
lost 1.5%, down for fifth session in a row.
** The Hang Seng index faced pressure as investors sold tech
firms amid a U.S. selloff and persistent Sino-U.S. tensions, KGI
Securities noted in report, adding the index could find support
at 24,000 points.
** The brokerage noted limited room for a further rally in
China's domestic banks listed in Hong Kong given the heavy
pressure from bad loans in coming quarters.
** On the mainland, China stocks dropped the most in six
weeks on Wednesday.
** The major concerns are lofty valuations and the
uncertainties around Sino-U.S. tensions, said Luo Kun, director
of macro strategy center at Chasing Securities.
** Any major corrections in U.S. stock market, where there

also put pressure on China's start-up firms and wider tech
players, Luo said.
