Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed on a mixed note as investors remained torn between weakening economic data and inflationary pressure. Nonetheless, sentiment was buoyed by the Federal Reserve stance that there will be no rate hike for now. Nonetheless, all eyes will be on April CPI to be out May 15. As a result, the DJI Average rose 125 points while the Nasdaq lost 5 points as the US 10-year yield edged higher at 4.50%. In Hone Kong, the HSI surged to almost the 19,000 mark or a YTD high aided by renew optimism of the recovering Chinese economy and that Xian became the 2nd city to scrap property purchase restrictions after Hangzhou. Sentiment was further boosted from talks that dividend tax may be scrapped on Hong Kong listed shares. Back home, the FBM KLCI remains in consolidation mode as the index ended flat at just above the 1,600 level. We believe buyers should return after recent bouts of correction thus expect the index to hover between the 1,600-1,610 with a strong upside bias today.
