Hong Kong stocks breached the key 15,000 level and surged 1,198.78 points, or 8.66 percent, to close at 15,044.47 on Monday as the market expected more stimulus measures from the central government during the country's annual economic work conference opening Monday in Beijing.

Turnover jumped to HK$63.88 billion ($8.25 billion) from Friday's HK$37.34 billion.
