Our Thoughts

Wall Street finished higher as data indicated continued economic growth. The DJIA and Nasdaq rose 243 points (0.6%) and 29 points (0.2%) respectively. In Asia, key indices mostly ended higher with strong gains in China and Hong Kong. Sentiment was buoyed by the PRC Government's commitment to providing additional economic support, which is expected to enhance liquidity in the banking system. The PBOC will slash the reserve requirement ratio by 50 basis points, releasing about US$140bn of cash to support the economy. As a result, the HSI rose 313 points or 2% to finish above the 16,000 level. On the domestic front, the FBM KLCI continued to trend higher, added 8 points (0.5%) to finish at 1,504 with broad based buying. We reckon if the index can sustain above the 1,500 level for an extended period, we anticipate stronger potential upwards in the near term. With the improvement of global equities, we anticipate that the FBM KLCI will trend higher within the range of 1,500-1,510 for today.
