Broader mar­ket eas­ier

The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

BURSA Malaysia ended steady yes­ter­day with the FBM KLCI gain­ing 1.40 points to 1,628.66, amid mixed per­for­mance in other re­gional bourses, deal­ers said.

How­ever, mar­ket breadth was neg­a­tive as losers out­weighed gain­ers 594 to 225 with 318 coun­ters un­changed, 605 un­traded and 81 sus­pended.

Among the heavy­weights, TNB shed 6 sen to RM14.14, May­bank slipped 5 sen to RM7.75, Pub­lic Bank added 4 sen to RM19.54, Sime Darby rose 6 sen to RM8.16 while Petronas Chem­i­cals was flat at RM6.79.

A dealer said the lo­cal bourse saw tight range trad­ing as buy­ing in se­lected heavy­weight coun­ters helped to lift the com­pos­ite in­dex.

“The lo­cal bourse tracked its re­gional peers which traded mixed, af­fected by a fur­ther slide in crude oil prices,” he said. – Ber­nama
