The FBM KLCI index lost 0.06 points or 0.00% on Monday. The Finance Index fell 0.04% to 17254.27 points, the Properties Index up 0.53% to 1415.73 points and the Plantation Index down 0.13% to 8407.16 points. The market traded within a range of 5.63 points between an intra-day high of 1803.31 and a low of 1797.68 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include CLIQ-WA, DAYA, FLONIC, APFT-WA, YTLPOWR-WB, KINSTEL, INARI-WA, THHEAVY, TENAGA and HARVEST. Trading volume decreased to 1375.14 mil shares worth RM1822.43 mil as compared to Friday’s 1649.48 mil shares worth RM2366.10 mil.

Leading Movers were IHH (+8 sen to RM4.09), AXIATA (+5 sen to RM6.83), GENM (+4 sen to RM3.90), UEMS (+4 sen to RM3.10) and PETDAG (+4 sen to RM26.40).

Market breadth was negative with 385 gainers as compared to 426 losers.

The KLCI slipped into the negative territory in the final hours of trading and ended with 1797.7 points, down marginally from the closing last Friday. The local index consolidated near the 1800 level as investors took cue from upbeat US corporate earnings announcements, as well as Japanese's election outcome, which saw the country's ruling party win a majority in Parliament's upper house. However, caution over China's economic progress held back investors, as last week's data showed economic growth slowing for a second quarter. Back in Malaysia, IHH was the biggest index mover after gaining 8 cents to close at RM4.09 while DiGi inched up by 3 cents after announcing its 2QFY2013 results last Friday.


Vietnam's benchmark VN index gained 0.5 percent at the close on Monday, as foreign investors dipped into the market to snap-up blue chips as trade volume hit a three-week high.

Pharmaceutical firm DHG Pharma climbed 6.1 percent and top insurer Bao Viet Holdings rose 5.2 percent.

Masan Group  climbed 4.3 percent, dairy maker Vinamilk  gained 0.7 percent and lender Sacombank was up 0.6 percent.
A 45-minute extension to trading hours on the index, effective Monday, helped boost liquidity in the market, said a trader. Some 54.4 million shares were traded on Monday, compared to the five-day average of 48 million, according to exchange data.

                     VN Index       506.16            
              PREV. CLOSE       503.76

Most Southeast Asian markets edged up on Monday, on expectations of strong quarterly results due in major financial centres over the next few weeks.  
Most other Asian share markets were modestly higher, although Hong Kong's Hang Seng and mainland Chinese stocks lost a bit of ground. A dealer said markets were now turning to earnings in the upcoming weeks for direction.

The Singapore benchmark index rose 0.66 percent, led by gains in CNA Group  shares.  

Vietnam gained 0.48 percent after an afternoon rally with DHG Pharma rising 6.1 percent.

Jakarta's composite index fell  0.96 percent, led by a more than 2 percent decline in consumer shares.

Blue chip stocks  dropped 1.7 percent.  

"We expect JCI to further increase this week as it has broken the two month downtrend resistance. However, we expect a technical correction for today would provide opportunities to buy on weakness within the range of 4,700 - 4,752," Trimegah Securities said in a note on Monday.     
The Thailand market was closed for a public holiday.
