KUALA LUMPUR: Bursa Malaysia retreated from yesterday’s gains to end lower today, in tandem with the weaker regional market performance following the large scale selldown of US and European equities overnight on fears of a global banking crisis, said an analyst.

At 5pm, the benchmark FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI (FBM KLCI) fell 12.33 points, or 0.88%, to 1,391.60 from Wednesday’s close of 1,403.93.

The key index opened 3.11 points lower at 1,400.82 and moved between 1,391.04 and 1,403.93 throughout the day.

Market breadth was negative with decliners thumping gainers 719 to 238 while 341 counters were unchanged, 969 untraded and 21 others suspended.

Turnover amounted to 3.52 billion units worth RM2.22 billion.

Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd vice-president of equity research Thong Pak Leng said Wall Street fell overnight as Credit Suisse Group AG shares sank, reigniting worries about a possible global banking crisis.

Investors were also uncertain about the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) action with regard to interest rates, he added.

“As for the local bourse, we believe that the selloff was unwarranted as the Malaysian banking system is highly regulated and has well-contained asset quality risks compared to the US.

“However, due to the uncertain global and regional conditions, we expect the short-term market sentiment to remain nervous,” he told Bernama.

Thong is anticipating that the FBM KLCI would trend between 1,390 and 1,400 points towards the weekend.

Among the heavyweight stocks, Maybank lost 9 sen to RM8.26, Public Bank dropped 2 sen to RM3.93 and Petronas Chemicals inched down 1 sen to RM6.99. CIMB shed 8 sen to RM5.15 and TNB weakened 7 sen to RM9.35.
