    Long lunches enjoyed by stock brokers in the Chinese territory of Hong Kong will soon be a thing of the past.

    The traders have just lost their long-running fight to save their two-hour lunch break, which is being cut to one hour so that more work can be done at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
