Market Pulse - 8Aug23 - Starting the week on muted trading

The local bourse ended relatively unchanged as investors are staying on the sidelines ahead of this weekend's state elections. We expect the muted trading sentiment to extend in coming days on the back of the absence of fresh leads. The lower liners may also experience similar movement as uncertainty over the outcome of Malaysia’s state election persists. Going forward, the key focus will be on the release of Malaysia’s industrial production data later today. Meanwhile, the improved market sentiment on Wall Street may see mild upsides permeating towards stocks across Bursa Exchange.
