The FBM KLCI index lost 1.52 points or 0.08% on Thursday. The Finance Index increased 0.04% to 17094.49 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.19% to 1379.49 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.14% to 8346.29 points. The market traded within a range of 5.94 points between an intra-day high of 1797.17 and a low of 1791.23 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include SONA-WA, TMS, SKPRES-WA, MAS, TMS-WA, ASUPREM, FLONIC, DVM, SONA and DVM-WA. Trading volume increased to 2415.19 mil shares worth RM2073.36 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 2201.84 mil shares worth RM1706.62 mil.

Leading Movers were HLFG (+18 sen to RM14.58), FGV (+13 sen to RM4.55), IHH (+10 sen to RM4.19), PBBANK (+8 sen to RM17.32) and SKPETRO (+6 sen to RM3.80).

Market breadth was positive with 418 gainers as compared to 381 losers.

The KLCI was in the positive territory for most of the day only to succumb into the red in the late stage before closing at 1792.2 points. This is following the overnight negative performance in the US market as the positive economic data renewed the fears over the tapering of Federal Reserve stimulus program. Back in Malaysia, the Moody’s Investors Service has a stable outlook on Malaysia’s A3 sovereign rating, which could served as good news to the market.

Indonesian shares posted limited losses on Thursday as rate sensitive stocks, such as property, reversed earlier falls after the central bank kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged as expected, while most Southeast Asian stocks fell, tracking global markets.  

Jakarta's Composite Index bounced off its day's low and ended down 0.3 percent, after remaining in negative territory through the session on caution over the interest rate  outcome, with some economists expecting a rate increase.
Bank Indonesia announced late in the day that it held the benchmark interest rate unchanged, as expected, in a bid to support growth as inflation hits domestic demand and investment  is slowing.  

The property sub-index, which had slipped earlier as a possible rate hike was seen making home purchases less affordable, edged up 0.44 percent.

Among the underperformers, Philippine stocks ended three sessions of gains to fall 1.1 percent while Singapore finished 0.9 percent lower, erasing a 0.7 percent rise over the past four sessions.
