Banking and platinum shares lost 1.65% and 1.09%‚ respectively.

“It is profit taking on low volumes. I don’t foresee activity picking up due to the half-day trading session in the US‚” said Kyle Dutton‚ a dealer at Mercato Financial Services.

Leading European bourses were fixed in the afternoon session‚ with the UK’s FTSE 100 edging up 0.13% at 12:29 local time.
