The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPEAK UP -

BURSA Malaysia closed lower yes­ter­day weighed down by losses in heavy­weights led by May­bank and Gent­ing.

At 5pm, the FBM KLCI fell 4.89 points, or 0.29 per cent, to close at 1,669.03.

The bench­mark in­dex, which opened 0.03 of-a-point higher at 1,673.95, moved be­tween 1,666.25 and 1,674.20 through­out the day.

May­bank lost 13 sen to RM7.79 and Gent­ing fell nine sen to RM7.76.
