Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed flat amid a choppy session as traders remain sidelined ahead of March CPI and job data to be out this Wednesday and Thursday. As a result, the DJI Average lost 11 points while the Nasdaq added 5 points as the US 10-year yield ended at a 5-month high of 4.422%. In Hong Kong, the HSI was flat as sentiment stayed cautious ahead of some key economic data to be released this week. Back home, the FBM KLCI maintained its uptrend to close at a YTD high of almost the 1,560 level. Nonetheless, we believe the index may be under some pressure today as the local bourse will be closed over the next 2 days for Hari Raya festivities thus expect the index to hover within the 1,555-1,565 range. Meanwhile, Gold trended to another record high underpinned by strong buying from both China and India.
