Our Thoughts

Wall Street ended mixed as the Federal Reserve paused their rate hike campaign but indicated that there will be more to come going forward. As a result, the DJI Average lost 233 points while the Nasdaq gained 53 points as the US 10-year yield declined to 3.79%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI slipped 180 points as traders were unimpressed with China’s anticipated stimulus to lower short term policy rate today may be a little too late. Meanwhile, sentiment was also affected by the delisting of mainland Chinese developers amid a weak housing market. Nonetheless, recent attempts from the US to ease tension with China may raise hopes to inject confidence back into the financial system. Back home, the FBM KLCI closed higher attributed to late buying activities on selected heavyweights. Today, we expect market sentiment to remain nervy amid heightening regional volatility taking cue from Wall Street. Thus, we reckon the index to remain stuck within the 1,380-1,390 range today and the absence of rate hikes may continue spur buying interests on Tech counters over the short term.
