KUALA LUMPUR: Bursa Malaysia snapped its strong showing over the past few days to end in the red on Thursday, on profit-taking. The retreat today was largely on account of declines in Petronas-linked stocks and telco stocks.

The local currency was down 0.01% against the pound sterling to 5.7315 and 0.13% against the Singapore dollar to 3.0667. In today’s session, 10 of the KLCI-component stocks were traded higher, 19 counters fell while the remaining one closed unchanged.
