Our Thoughts

Reality finally sets in on Wall Street as traders sold-down equities in view of the surging treasury yields as August job data came in stronger than expected. As such, the DJI Average tumbles by 431 points while the Nasdaq fell 248 points as the US 10-year yield touched the 4.795% level. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI shed 478 points as sentiment remains impacted by the US interest rate scenario coupled with the ongoing debt problems amongst the Chinese property developers. Back home, the FBM KLCI struggled to maintain its buying momentum despite the FBM KLCI closing just above the 1,420 mark. Domestic market undertone stayed cautious amid a mixed regional performance as knee-jerk reactions from the interest rate scenario in the US is expected to take central stage particularly heightening the volatility of regional currencies in the short term. Notwithstanding this, we expect Bank Negara to maintain the OPR at current level circa. 3%. Meanwhile, we anticipate trading to be lacklustre today and expect the index to hover between the 1,415-1,425 range.
