Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed firmer while traders are still debating whether the Federal Reserves will raise interest rates or not. Many are expecting the Feds to pause with the rate hike amid the strong US economic data with inflation remains at elevated levels. As a result, the DJI Average gained 124 points while the Nasdaq added 62 points despite the US 10-year yield climbing higher to 4.926%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI declined by 294 points as sentiment was spooked by China’s unexpected decline in manufacturing activities last month. In addition, traders also sold-down BYD as many fear that the EV maker may not be able to sustain its earnings growth going forward. Back home, the FBM KLCI added almost 3 points to stay above the 1,440 mark as market participation remains muted. We believe in line with other regional currencies, the pressure on the Ringgit versus the US$ is still an ongoing concern. For today, we expect the benchmark index to hover within the 1,440-1,450-range attributed to buying support from local institutions. Meanwhile, crude oil prices ease due to build up in inventory as the Brent crude dipped to below the US$88/barrel.
