Our Thoughts

Wall Street and major European stock markets were closed for Good Friday holiday. Hong Kong stock exchange was closed last Friday and today for Good Friday and Easter holidays. As for the local bourse, the FBM KLCI closed higher after a volatile session last Friday. The benchmark index gained 2.15 points to stay above its 1,425 immediate support level. We believe the market undertone to stay positive, supported by resurgence of foreign buying, improving local economy and undemanding valuations of the FBM KLCI, hence we reckon bargain hunting will continue with the index hovering between 1,425-1,440 for today. The Brent crude oil remains high at above USD81 per barrel, therefore we expect accumulation of O&G stocks will continue.
