COLOMBO, March 5 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks fell to a nine-week low on Tuesday, led by banks in thin volume as retail investors awaited for some indication on future interest rates, but foreign investors bought blue chips to boost turnover.

The main share index edged down 0.09 percent or 5.12 points to 5,626.77, its lowest since Dec. 28.

Foreign investors acquired a net 281.95 million rupees ($2.21 million) worth of shares, extending the year-to-date net foreign inflow to 601.1 million rupees.

The day's turnover was 602.76 million rupees, half this year's daily average of 1.04 billion rupees.

Stockbrokers said retail investors were concerned over a possible reverse in the trend of declining interest rates after the International Monetary Fund last month cautioned Sri Lanka over inflationary risks.

The market has fallen 3.5 percent in thin volume since the IMF on Feb. 13 said Sri Lanka was facing slow growth, high inflation and lower tax revenue risks.

Analysts said retailers were also worried about the effect of allegations Sri Lanka faces at the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva over the conduct of its military in the final stages of the 2009 defeat of Tamil Tiger separatists.

The rupee ended steady at 127.42/48 to the dollar. Currency dealers said they expected downward pressure on currency owing to rising imports ahead of the April new year festival season.

($1 = 127.3500 Sri Lanka rupees)

The All Share Price Index lost 5.12 points to close at 5,626.77 (-0.09%) while the S&P SL20 Index gained 5.14 points to close at 3,208.92 (0.16%).Total turnover for the day stood at LKR602.8 mn (USD4,729.5 k) vs. 12-month average daily turnover of LKR949.2 mn (USD7,447.0 k), whilst the volume traded for the day was 13,495 k against the 12-month average daily volume of 37,796 k.

Top contributory counters towards the turnover for the day were, John Keells Holdings LKR250.1 mn (USD1,962.0 k, 0.3%), Hatton National Bank LKR145.6 mn (USD1,142.5 k, 0.6%), Hatton National Bank (Non Voting) LKR21.3 mn (USD167.5 k, 0.9%) , Commercial Bank (Non Voting) LKR20.9 mn (USD164.5 k, 0.8%) Seylan Bank (Non Voting) LKR18.7 mn (USD146.9 k, -0.6%)

The activities at the Colombo bourse lost grip for the second consecutive day in the week to close in the negative trajectory as the retail investors continued to remain on the side line presumably due to the highlights on UNHCR sessions and other macro factors. However, foreign and institutional participation was witnessed in some blue chip companies which caused a marginal increase in the S&P SL 20 index. Conglomerate John Keells Holdings saw 4 crossings today where a cumulative 995K shares were traded at a price of LKR234.50. Moving in tandem Hatton National Bank also witnessed a crossing where over 930K shares were traded at a price of LKR148.80. Both counters recorded marginal price gains of 0.3% and 0.6% respectively to end the day in positive territory. In the normal board both Commercial Bank (Non Voting) and Seylan Bank (Non Voting) encountered both retail and institutional participation and joined the top turnover club. Former made a marginal price gain of 0.8% to close at LKR92.50. Meanwhile heavy retail play was observed in counters such as Tess Agro, Central Investment & Finance and Touchwood. Foreign purchases amounted to LKR292.9 mn (USD2,298.3 k), whilst foreign sales amounted to LKR11.0 mn (USD86.2 K). This resulted in a net foreign inflow of LKR282 mn being recorded at the end of the day’s trading. Market capitalization stood at LKR2,161.8 bn. YTD performance is -0.3%.

Usual play , by the time the retailers decide to get into the market the foreigners will be getting ready to exit.
