The Finance Index fell 0.28% to 17045.81 points, the Properties Index up 0.04% to 1379.98 points and the Plantation Index down 0.33% to 8318.73 points. The market traded within a range of 4.50 points between an intra-day high of 1791.26 and a low of 1786.76 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include TMS, TMS-WA, SONA-WA, ASUPREM, FLONIC, INSTACO, MAS, CSL, CSL-WA and FLONIC-WA. Trading volume decreased to 2132.22 mil shares worth RM1617.58 mil as compared to Thursday’s 2415.19 mil shares worth RM2073.36 mil.

Leading Movers were HLBANK (+16 sen to RM14.36), HLFG (+10 sen to RM14.68), SKPETRO (+5 sen to RM3.85), GENTING (+5 sen to RM9.90) and KLK (+2 sen to RM21.20).

Market breadth was negative with 379 gainers as compared to 422 losers.

The KLCI ended in the negative territory at 1788.24 points on the last trading day of the week. The worry over Federal Reserve might scale back its stimulus program in September had sapped local investors’ confidence and prompted the profit taking of investors while most of our Asean peers shared the same fate. Trading activity remained active with trading volume breached 2 billion shares as investors saw trading interest in small cap counters.

Indonesian stocks suffered the worst drop in almost six weeks on Friday, and ended with losses for the third straight week, while other Southeast Asian stocks retreated amid expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve would scale back its stimulus programme.  

Late sell-offs in large caps sent Jakarta's Composite Index 2.5 percent lower on the day, down 1.6 percent on the week, with selling most active in Bank Rakyat Indonesia Persero   and Telekomunikasi Indonesia.
A fall in the Indonesian rupiah to a four-year low, plus weak second quarter GDP growth of 5.8 percent released earlier in the month, sparked concerns among investors about a high interest rate outlook and further dented the local stock market.  
"Putting all of this together, given the concerns over the high level of inflation and the weakness of the rupiah, further rate hikes are likely before the end of the year," said Gareth Leather, an economist at London-based Capital Economics.
The prospect of tighter global liquidity derailed the rally in the region's outperformers this year, with the Philippine index  down 0.8 percent on the day, trimming its gain on the week to 1.9 percent.

Vietnam  pared earlier gains to end a tad lower at 0.08 percent. It was still up 1.4 percent on the week, with a year-to-date gain of 22.7 percent, Asia's fourth-best performing bourse.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
