Hong Kong shares set to open up 0.5 percent

HONG KONG, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares were set to open higher on Friday, putting them on track for a fifth straight session of gains, although caution ahead of U.S. payrolls data is likely to keep trading activity light.

The Hang Seng index was set to open up 0.5 percent at 21,007.6 points. The China Enterprises index of top locally listed mainland firms was indicated to open up 0.7 percent.
