The market traded within a range of 16.02 points between an intra-day high of 1782.72 and a low of 1766.70 during the session.

The FBM KLCI index edged marginally higher than yesterday to close at 1,777.82 level albeit on a thin volume, down 24%. We foresee the local bourse would continue to trade sideway as the external and internal negatives still worried investors. While across the region, most markets pare down yesterday’s losses following the better-than-expected reading in China's manufacturing index.
