The Finance Index fell 0.52% to 17141.58 points, the Properties Index up 0.33% to 1433.88 points and the Plantation Index down 0.31% to 9239.49 points. The market traded within a range of 8.38 points between an intra-day high of 1889.34 and a low of 1880.96 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include UTOPIA, SKPRES-WA, MAS, SUMATEC, IRETEX-LA, SKPRES, SUMATEC-WB, PWORTH, JAG and GREENYB. Trading volume increased to 1644.14 mil shares worth RM1803.79 mil as compared to Thursday’s 1420.84 mil shares worth RM1956.03 mil.

Leading Movers were IHH (+4 sen to RM4.39), YTL (+2 sen to RM1.60), SIME (+1 sen to RM9.67), and DIGI (+1 sen to RM5.74).

Market breadth was negative with 371 gainers as compared to 393 losers.

The KLCI closed lower at 1880.93 points. The decline was in line with regional markets and U.S. markets, owing to falling global bond yields and hawkish comments from the Federal Reserve. The local benchmark index was mainly dragged down by losses from heavyweights such as Public Bank, Petronas Dagangan, and Astro that succumbed to selling pressures, amid mild profit taking.

SE Asia Stocks - Most weak; Thai PTT shares rise after new directors

Thailand's main stock index hit a new eight-month high on Friday as shares of PTT  rallied after the appointment of new directors, while most others in Southeast Asia fell in line with Asian stocks amid doubts about the strength of the U.S. economy.  
Thailand's largest energy firm PTT has appointed six new directors to replace those who resigned as part of the military government's attempt to reform and restructure the state enterprise system.
PTT shares rose 1.3 percent to 312 baht, their highest close in almost two months. The stock had been under selling pressure since late May due to concerns that the energy reform plan could hurt earnings of energy companies.
 "The new directors clearly helped improve sentiment on PTT's stock and expectations on the reform plan are more positive now.

Buying in PTT shares was quite healthy after the news," said Pichai Lertsupongkij, a senior analyst at broker Thanachart Securities.
The SET index   closed at 1,483.24, the highest since Oct. 18 and added 1.1 percent on the week for a second straight week of gains. Foreign investors bought shares worth a net $59 million, their first net purchase in 14 sessions.  

Vietnam    and the Philippines    outperformed the region, rising 3.2 percent and 1.7 percent on the week, respectively, while Singapore  <.FTSTI> , Malaysia   and Indonesia   were little changed.
Shares of energy-related firms rose across the region as investors boosted exposure due to strong crude prices.

Philippine energy company First Gen Corp   and Indonesia's palm plantation firm Astra Agro Les Tari  led the gainers.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
