The KLCI fell and closed at 1771.89 points despite the higher closing in the US market. Investors continued to stay sidelined, as the market sentiments were probably dented by the slowing manufacturing activities in China, in which an official Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) declined to the lowest level in four months, underscoring a sustained slowdown in the nation’s economy as policy makers seek to rein in financial speculation and real-estate prices.
