Bursa close to a two-year high as trust among investors grows

Due to purchases from both domestic and foreign institutions, Bursa Malaysia maintained its positive trend and closed higher for the fifth day in a row, according to an analyst.

Key regional indices also closed higher as a result of the bullish signal from global stocks and expectations for solid earnings from tech titans this week, according to Thong Pak Leng, vice-president of equity research at Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd.

He stated that while investors are reassured after Middle East tensions lessened, solid earnings are expected to help offset concerns over the Federal Reserve's interest rate intentions ahead of the release of important US GDP and inflation data.

"In terms of domestic news, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI (FBM KLCI) is headed for a test of the 1,570 resistance level. Should this level be broken and maintained over time, our opinion is that the benchmark index will continue to rise.

For the remainder of the week, he told Bernama, "we anticipate the FBM KLCI to trend within the range of 1,550-1,570."

Sedek Jantan, head of wealth research and advice at UOB Kay Hian Wealth Advisors, and designated portfolio manager, reported that the FBM KLCI closed marginally higher today after hitting a record-breaking high of 1567.42 in the morning session.

"The FBM KLCI closed today on a positive note, propelled by encouraging signs of easing tensions in the Middle East."

"At the close of trading, the benchmark index saw an uptick of 2.05 points, or 0.13%," he stated.

Sedek stated that the outlook for Malaysian equities is still favorable due to the ringgit's stabilization and the steady flow of encouraging news.

"New sources of foreign direct investment (FDI) can be attracted and fostered by the advancement of domestic reform initiatives."

"Today's and yesterday's KL20 Summit highlights the government's commitment to accelerating the technology ecosystem," he continued.

The FBM KLCI increased 2.05 points to 1,561.64 at 5 p.m. from its closing value of 1,559.59 yesterday.

Throughout the trading day, the benchmark index, which began the day 0.22 of a point higher at 1,559.81, fluctuated between that level and 1,567.57.
