Taiwan stocks slip slightly
Taiwan stocks fell slightly on Monday, largely tracking regional shares and unnerved by the US Treasury's decision to keep Taiwan on a monitoring list for its trade practices.
As of 0338 GMT, the main TAIEX index was down 0.16 per cent at 9,717.28, after closing 1.1 per cent lower in the previous session.
The electronics sub-index was 0.04 per cent lower, while the financial sub-index was down 0.55 per cent.
Among actively traded stocks, Cathay Financial Holding, which is engaged mainly in the financing businesses, dipped 0.84 per cent.
On Monday, the Taiwan dollar strengthened T$0.082 to stand at T$30.318 to the US dollar, according to Reuters.
