Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed on a mixed note as traders ditched growth stocks in view of a slowing US economy as indicated by the slackening job market that saw the Nasdaq declined by 129 points with the US 10-year yield dropping to below the 3.10% level. On the flipside, the DJI Average gained 80 points buoyed by the uptrend of healthcare stocks. Hong Kong was closed for a public holiday. As for the local bourse, the FBM KLCI ended flat from some last minute buying on the Banking and Plantations counters. Although overall sentiment remains cautious, we noticed the index to be rather well supported at current levels thus anticipated it to hover around the 1,425-1,435 range today as accumulation on Energy and Telco counters are expected to prevail.
