Taipei, Sept. 15 (CNA) Shares in Taiwan closed below the 8,300 point mark Tuesday with the bellwether electronics sector in focus, while select old economy stocks attracted rotational buying to lend some support to the broader market, dealers said.
Market sentiment remained cautious, keeping many investors on the sidelines and dragging down turnover ahead of a policymaking meeting scheduled by the U.S. Federal Reserve for Sept. 16-17, the dealers said.
The weighted index on the Taiwan Stock Exchange closed down 47.30 points, or 0.56 percent, at 8,259.99, after moving between 8,226.07 and 8,327.95 on turnover of NT$68.59 billion (US$2.10 billion). [FULL STORY]
