Bursa ends at in­tra-day low

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPEAK UP -

CON­TIN­UED sell­ing pres­sure in fi­nance and trade and ser­vice coun­ters dragged Bursa Malaysia to close at an in­tra-day low yes­ter­day, deal­ers said.

The FBM KLCI fin­ished at 1,648.08, down 11.52 points.

On the broader mar­ket, losers thrashed gain­ers 500 to 277 with 379 coun­ters un­changed, 516 un­traded and 17 sus­pended.

MISC and CIMB were the top con­trib­u­tors to the drop in the com­pos­ite in­dex, de­clin­ing 27 sen and 12 sen to RM7.23 and RM4.76, re­spec­tively, for a com­bined loss of 3.85 points.

Among other heavy­weights, TNB slipped 4 sen to RM14.28, May­bank fell 3 sen to RM7.78, Pub­lic Bank gave up 2 sen to RM19.84 and Petronas Chem­i­cals erased 6 sen to RM6.94.

A dealer said most Asian stock mar­kets were weak on grow­ing con­cern over the out­come of next week’s US pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. – Ber­nama
