HK shares to open down 0.22 pct, to build new momentum

 HONG KONG, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares are set to
ease 0.22 percent in opening trade on Monday after the index hit
new highs for the year last week, and before gathering momentum
for the week ahead.
 Sentiment had cooled a bit, and the market may start looking
for a new focus after banks and Chinese stocks, which were
anticipated to be among the first to benefit from an expected
recovery, had risen on ample liquidity.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index .HSI was set to open down
48.51 points at 21,574.94.
 The China Enterprises Index .HSCE, which represents top
locally listed mainland Chinese stocks, edged down 0.5 percent
to 12,551.49.
