The FBM KLCI index lost 1.58 points or 0.1% on Thursday. The Finance Index decreased 0.2% to 17374.85 points, the Properties Index dropped 1% to 1404.56 points and the Plantation Index eased 0.3% to 8412.19 points. The market traded within a range of 3.53 points between an intra-day high of 1811.57 and a low of 1808.04 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include MAS, GBGAQRS-WA, ASUPREM, FLONIC, KINSTEL, SUMATEC-WA, SUMATEC, IRIS, MNC, TDM, and UEMS. Trading volume decreased to 1373.46 mil shares worth RM1862.6 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 1541.53 mil shares worth RM1941.09 mil.

Leading Movers were PPB (+18 sen to RM15.20), PETDAG (+10 sen to RM26.82), PETGAS (+8 sen to RM21.38), TENAGA (+2 sen to RM9.16) and CIMB (+2 sen to RM8.56). Lagging Movers were BAT (-56 sen to RM60.24), UMW (-16 sen to RM14.28), HLFG (-16 sen to RM14.40), HLBANK (-14 sen to RM14.26) and UEM (-8 sen to RM2.98). Market breadth was negative with 312 gainers as compared to 445 losers.

The KLCI swung in between the positive and negative territory in today trading before finishing flat at 1808.42 points. Declining counters outweighed the gaining counter by almost 50% as investors took profit in view of the negative lead from Wall Street. However, the impact was offset by upbeat economic data in the US and Europe and news that China is taking steps to help its economy.

Thailand's benchmark SET index  tumbled 3 percent on Thursday, its worst single-day drop in six weeks, as caution over domestic political developments spurred late selling, while other markets in Southeast Asia edged lower tracking global equities.  

Brokers said Thai political sentiment turned sour ahead of a parliamentary session next month which will consider a number of
key bills related to investment and political issues, including an amnesty bill.

The SET index closed at 1,456.68, the lowest in more than one week. Large caps topped losers, with Advanced Info Service
Pcl  and Airports of Thailand Pcl  both sliding nearly 5 percent.

Among underperformers, Jakarta's Composite Index  finished down 0.9 percent amid concerns about the rupiah's  weakness.
In the Philippines, the main index  posted modest fall of 0.06 percent before the Philippine central bank's decision to
keep its key policy rate at 3.5 percent as expected.
