Our Thoughts

Wall Street rallied as sentiment turned positive following a weaker than expected job data indicating that the Federal Reserve rate hike campaign could be over. As a result, the DJI Average gained 222 points while the Nasdaq added 184 points with the US 10-year yield easing to 4.577%. In Hong Kong, the HSI jumped 433 points taking the positive cue from Wall Street coupled with data showing that China’s services activity in October grew higher than the previous month. Back home, the FBM KLCI closed higher at almost the 1,450 mark as buyers returned amid an improving investment climate. We believe the improving market undertone should spur the local bourse higher today thus expect the index to hover within the 1,450-1,460 range. Meanwhile, the Ringgit strengthened against the US$ to around 4.72 from almost 4.80 previously on expectations that the Fed will pause with their rate hikes.
