But light trading volume renders most of the gains vulnerable to a correction. U.S. investors have been cautious ahead of the upcoming earnings season, kicking off in January. if components of the Hang Seng Index (INDEXHANGSENG:.HSI) can serve as proxy for ADR trading, outlook is best for oil major CNOOC Ltd. (NYSE:CEO) and Petrochina Co. Ltd. (NYSE:PTR), but Chinese telecoms remain under water.
