Stocks on Bursa Malaysia closed lower across the board yesterday as the ringgit fell past the 4.000 level to the US dollar on continued foreign selling after China devalued its currency. This marks the weakest the ringgit has seen since 1998, making the current rate of RM4.0275 to the US dollar a 17-year low. China's move had routed Asian share markets and currencies. The FBM KLCI fell 26.78 points or 1.64% to 1,609.93 after hitting an intra-day low of 1,603.26. Losers led gainers by 973 to 96 with 165 counters unchanged. Total volume rose to 2.49 billion units valued at RM2.29 billion from Tuesday’s 1.99 billion units valued at RM2.07 billion.
