Welcome to MONEY MASTER. Money Master is a financial management and money talk blog where our aim is to become the money master rather than the slave to the money. Making money is no easy job if you treat it as a burden but once money becomes your friend and work for you, that is when cash flows in. Becoming the money master rather than slave to it helps us redefine the whole idea of earning more - it's more like the money working for us.
As mentioned in the morning post on the oil prices plunge, the FBM KLCI continue the downtrend.
The downtrend continues
Most shares traded lower at the end of today, as the poor sentiments surrounding around the O&G counter spread to other sectors as well. OPEC's decision not to cut output to stem the falling crude oil prices crushes any hope of a quick rebound for the crude oil prices.
In fact, it's hard to even try to predict the bottom of it at this point of time.
The FBM KLCI fell 0.5% today, to close the week at 1,820.89 points at market close. However on a week-on-week basis, the KLCI ended the week 11.76 points or 0.65% higher, compared to last Friday’s closing of 1,809.13 points.
The OPEC's decision might just force the downtrend to continue for a while....as Reuters reported that oil prices, oil-related shares and oil-linked currencies all tumbled in Asia on Friday.
The huge supply of oil could hurt country like Malaysia and Russia.
Regionally though, markets were mixed with Hong Kong's Hap Seng and South Korea's Kospi both ending lower while Japan's Nikkei rose 1.23%.
