Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed broadly higher as sentiment improved following a lower Personal Consumption Expenditure index for February and easing concerns over a banking crisis. As a result, the DJI Average and S&P 500 rose 415 points and 58 points respectively while the Nasdaq added 208 points as the US 10-year yield declined to 3.47%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI ended 90 points higher on improving China’s manufacturing activities for March in addition to Alibaba and JD.com reorganization which fuelled a tech rally amongst the Chinese peers of late. As for the local bourse, emergence of profit taking activities during the afternoon session saw the FBM KLCI ended marginally lower. Nonetheless, we view this positively as it allows the market to digest recent uptrend. Therefore, we reckon the index to possibly chart higher today trending between the 1,420-1,435 range on broad based buying especially the Reits and Telco related counters.
