KUALA LUMPUR (July 20): The FBM KLCI dropped 0.43% at the midday break today, weighed by index-linked blue chips and telecommunication stocks.
Amid weaker regional markets, local investor sentiment further took a beating after Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng in a Bloomberg TV interview said he pared back expectations for economic growth for this year to about 5% as the export-reliant nation braces for knock-on effects of a brewing trade war.
At 12.30pm, the FBM KLCI fell 7.64 points to 1,751.60. The index had earlier dropped to its intra-morning low of 1,749.52.
