The trading day ended with the KLCI closing in the red at 1883.14 (-3.57) points. Performance at the local bourse was volatile throughout the day as investors seek to lock in profits from the index’s earlier gains, driven by better than expected U.S. corporate earnings and economic data. Regionally, Asian markets performed well, as Wall Street closed on yet another record high, while the Euro reached recent lows against the dollar amid speculation that the Federal Reserve is leaning towards tighter monetary policy, as its economy recovers.

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  closed 0.12 percent higher at 590.37 on Thursday, its highest since July 9, lifted by gains in some large caps.
 PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's largest listed firm by market capitalisation, rose 0.92 percent, while steel producer Hoa Phat Group  advanced 0.87 percent.
Mobile World Investment Corp  climbed 6.99 percent  to 99,500 dong ($4.70), almost double its starting price on July  14.

SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia retreats but inflows continue

Indonesian shares ended two days of gains on Thursday as local investors led selling in rallying shares such as Semen Indonesia   and Bank
Tabungan Negara , but steady inflows since last week's elections reflected a broader positive sentiment.     

The vote count so far suggests Jakarta's populist governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo is leading in the presidential election while the official result is due out on July 22. 
Jakarta's benchmark composite index  fell 0.8 percent, reversing from Wednesday's rise to the highest in more than 13 months.
Foreign investors bought shares for a sixth consecutive day on Thursday, with net purchases worth 530.2 billion rupiah ($45.4 million), taking their net buying in six days to 9.18 trillion rupiah ($786 million), Thomson Reuters data showed.
The market had seen a drop in foreign inflows in June and early July, before the elections.  
The Thai SET index   hit the highest close in more than 13 months as foreign inflows continued for a seventh straight session. Shares of Kasikornbank  and Bangkok Bank  remained unchanged ahead of their quarterly results.
After market close, Kasikornbank posted April-June net profit of 11.7 billion baht, close to expectations, while Bangkok Bank reported net profit of 9.03 billion baht for the quarter, slightly higher than expected.
Other Southeast Asian stock markets were little changed, in line with broader Asia  .
