Our Thoughts

It was another confusing day on Wall Street as both the Nasdaq and S&P 500 closed on record highs while the DJIA ended in negative territory. Sentiment was buoyed but May’s lower than expected CPI data but at the same time dampened by the Federal Reserve’s indication of possibly only one cut in rates this year. In tandem with the cooling inflation figure, the Fed kept interest rates unchanged as the US 10-year yield eased to 4.318%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI declined to below the 18,000 mark as selling gathered momentum following China’s latest inflation data that signals weak demand. Meanwhile, the EU’s imposition of more tariffs on Chinese EVs next month to a tune of 48% would see negative implications for such carmakers on the mainland. Back home, the FBM KLCI ended lower despite a strong opening amid a mixed regional performance. Nonetheless, we believe buyers should emerge today after the broader market resurgence on Wall Street overnight thus expect the benchmark index to hover between the 1,610-1,625 range.
