Malaysia, Singapore stocks steady amid mixed US economic data

Investors also await China-US trade talks

KUALA LUMPUR (Nikkei Markets) -- Shares in Malaysia and Singapore held steady on Thursday as investors crunch the numbers from a mixed bag of U.S. economic data and track geopolitical developments.

The FBM KLCI fell 0.2% at 1,854.44 as a selloff in heavyweight banking stocks and Kuala Lumpur Kepong outweighed gains in consumer stocks. The Straits Times Index, meanwhile, was up 0.1% at 3,536.76 thanks to industrials and consumer staples stocks.
