COLOMBO, Dec 24 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks closed broadly flat in thin trade on Tuesday, as gains in diversified shares were offset by losses in oil palm stocks.

Turnover slumped to the lowest since Dec. 11 as investors stayed away from the market ahead of Christmas holiday on Wednesday.

The day's turnover was 246.4 million rupees ($1.88 million), less than a third of this year's daily average of 831.7 million rupees.

The main stock index edged down 0.01 percent, or 0.49 points, to 5,845.93, marking its third day of falls. On Thursday, it had closed at its highest level since Nov. 7.

Oil palm stock Indo Malay fell 7.41 percent to 1,250 rupees, while conglomerate Aitken Spence gained 1 percent.

Foreign investors bought a net 100 million rupees worth of shares on Tuesday, bringing the net foreign inflow to 22.43 billion rupees so far this year.

Analysts expect the market to rally early in the new year as the possibility of retail investors returning to risky assets is increasing due to falling interest rates.

Yields in 91-day and 182-day T-bills dropped 19 basis points and 34 basis points respectively, while the yield in the 364-day T-bill fell 24 basis points. Yields in all three T-bills were at their lowest levels since November 2011 at a weekly auction on Tuesday.

($1 = 130.7500 Sri Lanka rupees)

Foreign investors may be stunned after reading the speech vehemently made by the JVP parliamentarian with full of evidence pertaining to manipulated few economic indicators.
Non or poor response displayed to that statement has made the situation worsen. Any impact?
