The FBM KLCI index lost 3.25 points or 0.18% on Tuesday. The Finance Index fell 0.16% to 16901.74 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.29% to 1360.91 points and the Plantation Index down 0.28% to 8367.75 points. The market traded within a range of 6.80 points between an intra-day high of 1777.06 and a low of 1770.26 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include MAS, LUSTER, INGENCO, ETITECH, MAYBANK, AMBANK, TGOFFS, CIMB, MPHBCAP and TENAGA. Trading volume increased to 1169.53 mil shares worth RM1798.55 mil as compared to Monday’s 1097.58 mil shares worth RM1566.21 mil.

Leading Movers were PETGAS (+32 sen to RM21.22), AMMB (+14 sen to RM7.52), MISC (+9 sen to RM5.23), HLFG (+6 sen to RM14.80) and PETDAG (+6 sen to RM25.96).

Market breadth was negative with 334 gainers as compared to 364 losers.

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.
