Our Thoughts

Wall Street close mixed amid mounting tension in the Middle east. Confidence is further eroded over the interest rate uncertainty coupled with earnings of some mega caps this week that should instigate some profit taking activities. As such, though the DJI Average added 211 points, the Nasdaq lost 319 points as the US 10-year yield eased marginally to 4.621%. The situation in Hong Kong was also unpromising with the HSI losing 162 points as traders sold equities in favour of safe haven namely gold. Back home, the FBM KLCI managed to close positively underpinned by accumulation from local institutions amid a regional bloodbath. Nonetheless, we believe trading to be muted today as sentiment would have turned cautious in view of the heightened volatility. Therefore, we expect the index to hover within the 1,540- 1,550 range today.
