KUALA LUMPUR: Bursa Malaysia joined key regional markets to end a volatile 2018 on a weak note, battered by the US-China trade tensions, weak commodity prices, disappointing corporate results and net outflow by foreign funds.

At 5pm, the FBM KLCI was down 1.49 points or 0.09% to 1,690.58 on late selling of selected banks and telcos. At the current level, the KLCI is trading at a price-to-earnings of 19.13 times.
