Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed higher last Friday despite fears that the banking crisis was spilling over to Deutsche Bank. The selling of Deutsche Bank's stocks had a negative impact on market sentiment, however the market was supported by buying momentum in megacap tech and other sectors, which helped to lift all major indexes into positive territory. The DJIA gained more than 130 points while S&P500 and Nasdaq added 22 and 36 points respectively. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI closed marginally lower as investors are worried that more banks might suffer a debilitating outflow of customers following the second and third largest US bank failures in history. Back home, FBM KLCI fell below the 1,400 mark due to negative sentiment across the region. We believe the recent banking crisis in the US and Europe has very little impact to Malaysia as our banking system is highly regulated whereby asset quality risks are well contained. However, due to uncertain global and regional conditions, we expect short-term market sentiment to remain nervous. Having said that, the local benchmark index is still in oversold position, thus we expect bargain hunting to emerge and anticipate the FBM KLCI to trend within the 1,400-1,410 for today.
