The FBM KLCI index gained 6.01 points or 0.33% on Wednesday. The Finance Index fell 0.19% to 16403.89 points, the Properties Index up 0.17% to 1405.86 points and the Plantation Index down 0.08% to 8335.71 points. The market traded within a range of 9.40 points between an intra-day high of 1827.40 and a low of 1818.00 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include SOLUTN, IFCAMSC, AAX, IFCAMSC-WA, SYSTECH, PRIVA, MINETEC, THHEAVY-WA, NEXGRAM and TDEX. Trading volume increased to 2105.61 mil shares worth RM1927.80 mil as compared to Tuesday’s 1755.30 mil shares worth RM1708.35 mil.

Leading Movers were GENTING (+47 sen to RM9.37), HLFG (+34 sen to RM17.98), TM (+13 sen to RM7.30), GENM (+6 sen to RM4.09) and FGV (+5 sen to RM3.41). Lagging Movers were KLK (-66 sen to RM23.00), CIMB (-14 sen to RM6.06), KLCC (-6 sen to RM6.86), RHBCAP (-5 sen to RM8.45) and SIME (-5 sen to RM9.65). Market breadth was positive with 438 gainers as compared to 357 losers.

The KLCI closed 6.01 points higher to settle at 1824.39 points. The local bourse pared some of its early morning gains on profit taking activities, amid the lack of fresh market catalysts. Regionally, Asian markets were mostly mixed, with Japanese markets reacting to a delay in sales-tax increase, additional stimulus and a call for election by locking in profits. Investor sentiment was further hit by extended losses in oil prices and China stocks beginning to lose momentum a few days after its stock-link debut.

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Indonesia hits 7-week high


Southeast Asian stock markets ended mixed on Wednesday, with Indonesia extending gains after its central bank unexpectedly increased rates to contain inflationary pressure.
   
 Indonesia's benchmark stock index   rose 0.5 percent, its fourth daily gain, to its highest in seven weeks after Bank Indonesia raised key interest rates by 25 basis points to 7.75 percent a day after the government raised price of subsidised fuel by more than 30 percent.
    
"The main aim is to anchor inflation expectations going forward more than anything. BI remains confident that inflationary impact of the fuel price hike is only temporary," DBS Group said in a research note on Wednesday.  
    
Shares of Indonesia's most valuable bank PT Bank Central Asia Tbk   rose 1.9 percent.
    
Singapore's FTSE Straits Times Index    led the region, with a 0.6 percent gain as banks posted better-than-expected third-quarter earnings, defying a weaker economy, said broker Maybank KimEng.
    
Shares of United Overseas Bank Ltd   rose 0.7 percent as Maybank KimEng added it to the broker's top buy list.
    
Thailand's main stock index   fell 0.2 percent on Wednesday after closing at its two-week high a day earlier.
