The FBM KLCI index lost 1.36 points or 0.08% on Wednesday. The Finance Index increased 0.10% to 17087.24 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.24% to 1382.07 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.05% to 8335 points. The market traded within a range of 9.80 points between an intra-day high of 1801.26 and a low of 1791.46 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include MAS, TMS, TMS-WA, SONA-WA, LUSTER, AMEDIA, DAYA, SONA, ASUPREM and FLONIC. Trading volume increased to 2201.84 mil shares worth RM1706.62 mil as compared to Tuesday’s 1994.67 mil shares worth RM1870.00 mil.

Leading Movers were HLBANK (+8 sen to RM14.30), KLK (+8 sen to RM21.22), GENTING (+6 sen to RM9.97), HLFG (+4 sen to RM14.40) and SKPETRO (+3 sen to RM3.74). Lagging Movers were BAT (-24 sen to RM62.74), PETGAS (-22 sen to RM21.06), PETDAG (-22 sen to RM28.78), UEMS (-6 sen to RM2.75) and GENM (-6 sen to RM4.37). Market breadth was positive with 447 gainers as compared to 349 losers.

The KLCI positive run was ended today by closing marginally lower at 1793.7 points. The investors’ confidence were probably dented by the renewed concern over the possible scaling down of the bond buying stimulus program by Federal Reserve after the retail sales in US rose for a fourth consecutive month in July. Back in Malaysia, Malaysia Airline System Bhd (MAS) was most actively traded stock of the day while share price surged 8% after Datuk Seri Idris Jala, Minister of the Prime Minister Department was quoted saying the government should sell its stake in MAS at the right price.

Most Southeast Asian stocks gained on Wednesday as investors bought shares with strong earnings, including Philippine Robinsons Land Corp  ,while interest rate-sensitive shares rose in Indonesia ahead of a central bank decision on Thursday.    
The Philippine index finished up 1.56 percent at 6,656.61, the highest close since Aug. 1. Jakarta's Composite Index extended its gain for a second day, up 1 percent at 4,699.73, the highest close since July 24.
Vietnam  rose 1.17 percent, with investors buying shares of blue chip companies in the energy, food and banking sectors.  
Stocks in Singapore, Malaysia  and Thailand were little changed in relatively thin trade as Asia was broadly weak after U.S. sales data reinforced expectations that the Federal Reserve will soon pare its stimulus.  

Foreign investors have reduced weights in most Southeast Asian stocks, with Thai exchange posting net foreign selling for the month to Aug. 13 worth $345 million and Malaysian bourse recording net foreign selling of $382 million for the period.
