Taiwan shares fall below 8,100 points in mid-morning session

Taipei, Aug. 19 (CNA) Taiwan shares extended losses in the mid-morning session Wednesday from a day earlier to fall below the 8,100 point mark amid lingering concerns over the economic fundamentals, dealers said.
Selling focused on large cap stocks across the board, in particular in the bellwether electronics sector and the financial sector to place heavy downward pressure on the broader market, they said.
As of 10:26 a.m., the weighted index on the Taiwan Stock Exchange had fallen 1.78 percent at 8,031.40 points on turnover of NT$39.16 billion (US$1.20 billion). (By Frances Huang)
