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.

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 VN index  closed down 1.7 percent on Monday, with investors reluctant to trade after a period of foreign selling and concerns about increasing inflation, traders said.

Dairy maker Vinamilk lost 2.1 percent, state energy firm PetroVietnam Gas and property company Vingroup both fell 1.6 percent, followed by Hoang Anh Gia Lai, down 1 percent as most big caps lost.

"The most striking factor affecting the stock market was rising inflation," said Vu Thi Thu Trang, an analyst at Asia-Pacific Securities, adding that foreign investors' net selling in three consecutive sessions last week had dented confidence.
