Wall Street closed mixed as deteriorating consumer sentiment data and the Middle East conflict soured investors on riskier bets and overshadowed upbeat quarterly earnings from some of the largest US banks.

Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed on a mixed note as sentiment was spooked by the spike in crude oil prices renewing worries over rising inflation. As such, though the DJI Average gained 39 points, the Nasdaq declined by 167 points despite the US 10-year yield easing to 4.617%. In Hong Kong, the HSI retreated by 425 points after both the producer and consumer prices came in lower than expectations reigniting concerns over China’s recovery rate. On the home front. The FBMKLCI ended flat as all eyes were on the tabling of Budget 2024 last Friday. We believe the post-Budget reaction on the local bourse to be neutral though we expect buying support on the Construction players to persist. As for the broader market, we anticipate it to remain lacklustre thus expect the index to hover within the 1,440-1,450 range today. Meanwhile, crude oil prices surged as Israel began their ground raids inside the Gaza strip. As a result, the Brent crude closed at almost US$91/barrel.
