The KLCI ended marginally higher at 1818.39 points amid broadly higher Asian markets. The Budget 2014 unveiled on last Friday took the limelight and gave trading cues to the investors. The absence of sin tax in Budget 2014 had positively surprised the investors and lifted sin and gaming stocks. On the flip side, a slew of property cooling measures had dented investors’ interest in property counters and resulted in sold down in most property stocks.
