KOSPI Closes 0.14% Higher on Wednesday

South Korean stocks were mixed on Wednesday, boosted by a rise on Wall Street but bogged down by political headlines in the U.S. and a retreat in Chinese markets. 

The benchmark Korea Composite Stock Price Index(KOSPI) closed the day three-point-27 points, or point-14 percent higher, to end the day at two-thousand-273-point-33.  

The tech-heavy KOSDAQ fell, losing one-point-20 points, or point-15 percent. It closed the day at 785-point-95.

On the foreign exchange, the local currency weakened point-five won against the dollar, ending the session at one-thousand-118-point-nine won.
