Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed lower for fourth consecutive day on renewed banking fears. The Dow fell by 286 points while Nasdaq shed 0.49%. Over in Hong Kong, stocks ended higher as investors cheered the prospect of an imminent pause to interest-rate hikes. On the domestic front, the FBM KLCI closed in negative territory as Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) unexpectedly raised the overnight policy rate (OPR) by 25 basis points (bps) to 3%. We believe the local market to see some headwinds particularly banking and property stocks following BNM's monetary tightening measure although bargain hunting activities may emerge as well. Hence, we anticipate the benchmark index to trend sideways within the range of 1,420-1,430 for today.
