Meanwhile, on the external front, US stocks bounced off their worst levels but still ended in negative territory Monday, as initial euphoria over Cyprus fizzled and even after Eurogroup head's Jeroen Dijsselbloem backtracked on his previous comments that the island nation's bailout is a template for bank rescues.
Smilarly, European shares erased their early gains to finish in negative territory, pressured by banks.
JF Apex Research as for Bursa Malaysia, the FBM KLCI which surged 17 points to 1,643.89 on Monday, could see some profit taking following the decline in US and European markets.
