COLOMBO | Mon Oct 22, 2012 4:54pm IST
Oct 22 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks slumped on Monday to their lowest level in six weeks with turnover skidding to a two-month low on retail selling on margin calls ahead of the central bank's board meeting on rate policy later in the day.

The Colombo Stock Exchange's main index fell 1.69 percent, or 95.64 points, to 5,553.89, its lowest close since Sept. 7.

"There is selling pressure as some brokers forced retailers to settle debts and they had to come down and sell at lower prices," a stockbroker said on condition of anonymity.

Analysts said investors remained on the sidelines ahead of an announcement on central bank monetary policy due on Tuesday.

The day's turnover was 257.1 million rupees ($1.99 million), lowest since August 17 and less than a third of this year's daily average of 945 million rupees.

The market saw a net foreign inflow of 36 million rupees, extending the net offshore inflow to 33.55 billion rupees so far this year.

The rupee ended weaker at 129.75/80 to the dollar compared to Friday's close of 129.10/20, on seasonal importer demand for dollars, dealers said. ($1 = 129.0250 Sri Lanka rupees) (Reporting by Ranga Sirilal and Shihar Aneez; Editing by Ron Popeski)

The Colombo bourse fell sharply on selling pressure Monday (22) with all three indices closing in the red amidst weak investor sentiments, brokers said.

The All Share Price Index fell 1.69 percent to close at 5,553.89 down 95.64 points (down 8.57 year to date) while the Milanka Price Index of more liquid stocks lost 46.39 points to close 0.9 percent lower at 5,090.09. The S&P SL20 fell 1.05 percent, down 31.96 points to close at 3,010.02.

"The market opened on a flat note but turned into a sea of red due to persistent selling pressure. The negative market breadth reflected the weak sentiment prevailing in the market. There were 175 shares on the declining side and only 31 shares advanced," Bartleet Religare Securities said.

Activity was low with only 12.2 million shares changing hands during the day generating a turnover of Rs. 257.06 million. Foreign inflows amounted to Rs. 79.5 million leading to a net foreign buying position of Rs. 36 million.

"Sharp drops in several large caps dragged the indices lower amidst renewed selling pressure across the board. Activity levels remained subdued and were led by trades on JKH, Commercial Bank, and Chevron Lubricants, which collectively accounted for over 30% of turnover," John Keells Stockbrokers said.

JKH closed 0.49 percent higher at Rs. 207 with 189,087 shares changing hands during the day. Commercial Bank fell 0.47 percent to Rs. 105 on 196,352 shares. Chevron Lubricants closed 0.26 percent higher at Rs. 196.50 on 104,332 shares.

Commercial Development Company was the biggest gainer, moving up by 15.64 percent to close at Rs. 75.40 with just one share being traded.

Bogala Graphite gained 7.69 percent to close at Rs. 29.40.

Selinsing was the biggest loser, down 16.6 percent to Rs. 1,105 while Commercial Leasing and Finance fell 12.19 percent to Rs. 3.60.
