Only the services sub-index managed to eke out a gain in the continued foreign selling with the other five sub-indices posting losses with the industrials declining the biggest, down at 1.25 percent followed by mining and oil down by 0.60 percent, financials down by 0.43 percent, and property down by 0.49 percent.

The index sagged to a low of 6,374.07 points indicating the lack of interest from investors. The bargain hunters, however, stepped in to swing back the index to its milestone level.
