The Finance Index increased 0.51% to 17070.44 points, the Properties Index up 0.52% to 1385.4 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.41% to 8330.93 points. The market traded within a range of 11.83 points between an intra-day high of 1796.29 and a low of 1784.46 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include LUSTER, SONA-WA, DAYA, TMS, FLONIC, ASUPREM, ETITECH, FLONIC-WA, MAS and TIGER. Trading volume increased to 1994.67 mil shares worth RM1870.00 mil as compared to Monday’s 1592.32 mil shares worth RM1705.41 mil.

The KLCI extended its gains after the long Hari Raya holiday, closing at 1795.1 points. The strong performance of our local bourse was probably due to the returning of the local investors from the festive break, resulting in higher trading volume. Besides, the investors’ sentiments were probably buoyed by the firmer regional market as well, led by the Japanese market as a report showed machinery orders beat estimate and amid a report Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is considering a corporate-tax cut.
