Malaysia: Bursa Malaysia extended yesterday’s gains to open higher today on continued buying interest while tracking the bullish overnight close on Wall Street, dealers said.
At 9.05 am, the benchmark FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI (FBM KLCI) stood at 1,781.02, up 3.89 points, after opening 2.84 points higher at 1,779.97 against Wednesday's close of 1,777.13.

Turnover stood at 168.81 million shares worth RM80.64 million.
The dealers said the key index was in line with gains on Wall Street supported by the overnight comment from European Central Bank (ECB) chief economist Peter Praet that the bank is about to take a key step towards an easy-money exit.
This shows that the ECB remains on track to debate the timetable for ending its asset purchases soon, the dealers added.
Meanwhile, Maybank Investment Bank Bhd said the FBM KLCI could extend its gains as worries over a full-blown trade war dissipate.
