The segments of the engineering industry and the energy industry responded the most to the appeal. Shares of these companies rose two percent. In the opposite direction, however, the pharmaceutical sector went, writing off almost two percent. China’s recovery also spilled over to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, which firmed 0.19 percent on Wednesday, as measured by the Hang Seng Index. The technology sector added nearly one percent.
