The FBM KLCI index lost 1.60 points or 0.09% on Friday. The Finance Index fell 0.00% to 16587.4 points, the Properties Index up 0.11% to 1290.89 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.24% to 8330.75 points. The market traded within a range of 6.67 points between an intra-day high of 1770.80 and a low of 1764.13 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include SALCON-WA, SALCON, IRCB, SUMATEC-WA, IRCB-WA, HOVID-WB, INSTACO-WB, SUMATEC, SUPERMX-CM and DESTINI. Trading volume decreased to 1233.04 mil shares worth RM1382.74 mil as compared to Thursday’s 1458.00 mil shares worth RM1753.00 mil.

Leading Movers were GENTING (+5 sen to RM10.00), HLFG (+4 sen to RM14.98), UEMS (+4 sen to RM2.48), ASTRO (+3 sen to RM2.98) and DIGI (+3 sen to RM4.83). Lagging Movers were BAT (-110 sen to RM62.40), PETDAG (-34 sen to RM28.00), UMW (-20 sen to RM12.26), PETGAS (-14 sen to RM21.10) and PPB (-12 sen to RM14.30). Market breadth was negative with 300 gainers as compared to 391 losers.

The KLCI ran out of steam after advancing for four consecutive days to finish marginally lower at 1770.8 points in the last trading day of the week. Investors were reluctant to jump in ahead of the decisive Federal Reserve meeting next week which will give more clues on the continuity of its stimulus program, while the sentiments took a hit following the release of a weaker-than-expected euro zone data.

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
