Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed mixed, with the DJIA finishing at an all- time high. The Dow rose 62 points (0.16%) to end at 39,131. Meanwhile, profit takings were seen in Nasdaq as it ended 45 points (-0.28%) lower. In Asia, major indices closed largely higher, thanks to a strong inflow of global funds. Nonetheless, in Hong Kong, the HSI closed 0.1% lower due to profit-taking activities after it gained more than 10% since the benchmark hit a 14-month low in January. As for the local bourse, the FBM KLCI rebounded thanks to strong buying on YTL following its impressive 4QFY23 earnings. We reckon the market undertone will remain steady in the near term, supported by encouraging corporate results and an inflow of foreign funds, although profit takings may set in. As such, we anticipate the benchmark index to trend within the range of 1,545-1,555 for today. On the other hand, the CPO futures are currently on uptrend, hovering just below the RM4,000 per tonne level. Should the CPO futures break the RM4,000 per tonne, we reckon investors will take positions on the plantation sector.
