The final trading day of the week saw the KLCI close in the red at 1872.97 (-10.17) points. Losses at the local bourse, was attributed to a knock on effect by broad sell offs spreading from the U.S. and European markets to Asia, triggered by the tragedy of Malaysian Airlines MH17. Investor sentiments looked bleak as investors move towards the safety of traditional asset havens, like bonds and gold. Regionally, Asian markets also fell, reacting to the plane crash in Ukraine, a ground offensive in Gaza and additional Russian sanctions, as fears of a bigger crisis at hand looms.

Vietnam index hits 3-mth high, FPT soars on buyout talk

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   rose 1 percent on Friday to 596.26 points, the highest close since April 11, with technology firm FPT    gaining on speculation of a buyout by a company in Silicon Valley, analysts said.
 FPT shares jumped 6.28 percent to close at 52,500 dong ($2.48), the highest since May 6, with volume hitting a five-year high of 3.26 million shares, Reuters data showed.

Other blue chips also advanced, including dairy product maker Vinamilk , which gained 3.1 percent. Property firm Vingroup   rose 1.45 percent.
Volume was solid at 144 million shares, well above the five-day average of 117 million, according to Reuters data.
