KLCI, Asian markets close lower on weak China data


KUALA LUMPUR: Blue chips ended Monday in the red on concerns about a slowdown in China's economy while a decline in oil prices sent Petronas-linked stocks lower.

At 5pm, the KLCI was down 7.06 points or 0.42% to 1,676.16. Turnover was 2.18 billion shares valued at RM1.42bil, reflecting the poor quality due to the surge in Perisai shares traded. There were 286 gainers, 557 losers and 292 counters unchanged.
