Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed lower as traders became wary of rising bond yield amid some profit taking activities. The DJI Average lost 36 points while the Nasdaq erased 120 points as the US 10-year yield edged higher to above 3.64%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI continued with its correction as it declined by 438 points on a weak corporate earnings outlook. On the home front, the FBM KLCI ended flat as sentiment remained cautious. However, we reckon bargain hunting may emerge anytime soon as the index was stuck within a consolidation phase over the past 3 weeks. Therefore, we expect some accumulation on the Telcos and Utilities stocks to emerge hence expect the index to trend between the 1,490-1,500 range today. Meanwhile, better demand had pushed crude oil prices higher to almost US$81/barrel
