Hong Kong trades bite for business

Brokers lose fight for long lunches as the territory's stock exchange extends its trading hours.

    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.
