Our Thoughts

Wall Street finished mixed yesterday despite heavy selling in tech stocks led by Nvidia. The Dow climbed 0.67% with strong buying in banks and energy stocks. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 benchmark dipped 0.3%, while the tech-centric Nasdaq Composite dropped over 1% due to Nvidia's more than 6% decline. Regionally, key indices closed mixed as investors were cautious following the sell-off in global tech stocks. In Hong Kong, the HSI pared losses and managed to stay above the 18,000 level. We reckon upcoming economic data releases, corporate earnings reports, and global trade developments are expected to influence investor sentiment as Hong Kong navigates economic challenges and external pressures. On the domestic front, the FBM KLCI trended in a tight range and ended in negative territory in tandem with the performance of emerging markets. We expect this to offer opportunities for investors to engage in bargain hunting given the cheaper valuations. On the other hand, Brent crude oil remains elevated at above USD 83 per barrel, and we believe this will provide a short-term play on energy stocks. We anticipate the benchmark index to trend within the range of 1,590-1,610 for today.
