The Finance Index fell 0.22% to 17337.23 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.39% to 1399.06 points and the Plantation Index down 0.08% to 8405.34 points. The market traded within a range of 6.67 points between an intra-day high of 1811.65 and a low of 1804.98 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include GBGAQRS-WA, LUSTER, FARMBEST-WB, TGOFFS, TDM, INSAS, MAS, MINETEC, LUSTER-WB and ASUPREM. Trading volume decreased to 1119.75 mil shares worth RM1623.76 mil as compared to Thursday’s 1373.46 mil shares worth RM1862.60 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+54 sen to RM60.78), PETDAG (+20 sen to RM27.02), HLFG (+10 sen to RM14.50), MISC (+7 sen to RM5.79) and PPB (+6 sen to RM15.26).Lagging Movers were CIMB (-11 sen to RM8.45), UEMS (-9 sen to RM2.89), RHBCAP (-5 sen to RM8.50), KLK (-4 sen to RM21.38) and MAYBANK (-2 sen to RM10.70). Market breadth was negative with 303 gainers as compared to 443 losers.

The KLCI extended the losses yesterday before finishing at 1807.6 points in the last trading day of the week. Most of the investors were staying sideline ahead of the weekend break, resulting in low trading volume today as compared to the previous days. In addition, the US market, which eked out modest overnight gain, offered little clue to the investors amid the ongoing concern on the slowing growth in China. Globetronics, the supplier of sensor product for the smart phone and tablet market, rose 5.3%, inspired by the better-than-expected earnings from Apple and Samsung, while Encorp advanced by 0.5% after bagging construction contracts yesterday.

Vietnam's benchmark VN index closed up 0.4 percent on Friday, lifted by buying in blue chips while many investors stayed on the sidelines awaiting better news on the country's macro economy.

Energy firm PetroVietnam Gas rose 1.6 percent, dairy maker Vinamilk  climbed 0.7 percent, and top insurer Bao Viet Holdings   edged up 1.2 percent.
Pharmaceuticals firm DHG Pharma climbed 2.8 percent, Pha Lai Thermal Power  was up 1.3 percent.

Property company Hoang Anh Gia Lai increased 1 percent.
"This is just a short recovery in a downward trend, led by good second-quarter earnings reports that have already been reflected in stock prices in the past weeks," said Tran Minh Hoang, an investment analyst at Vietcombank Securities.
The launch on Friday of an asset management company to buy bad debts from lenders had little impact on banking stocks,  which all closed unchanged.

Advanced Info Service, top actively traded and a short selling target on the previous session, jumped 2.5 percent.

percent on the week, the fifth straight week of gain.
