Our Thoughts

Wall Street rebounded as concerns over the banking sector eased coupled with expectations that the Federal Reserve may halt its rate hike in May. As such, both the DJI Average and S&P 500 gained 323 points and 56 points respectively while the Nasdaq jumped by 210 points as the US 10-year yield remains at 3.57%. Hong Kong equities saw a steep increase with the HSI added more than 400 points to surge pass the 20,000 level as worries of a banking crisis abates. The reorganization of the Alibaba Group further fueled optimism that propped up Chinese tech stocks. As for the local bourse, it was another good day as the FBM KLCI continued to be supported by ongoing accumulation of Banking and Telco stocks that saw the index touching 1,420 mark. In line with the improving sentiment, we reckon the ongoing uptrend to remain intact and expect the index to hover within the 1,420-1,435 range today with buying interests returning to Planation counters as the CPO closed on a week’s high at above RM3,700/tonne.
