Market Pulse - 4Aug23 - Weakness well cushioned

The FBM KLCI recorded its third day of losing streak accompanied by lower trading value, spooked by the renewed volatility on Wall Street overnight. We believe the local bourse performance may mirror the weaker sentiment from Wall Street and the regional markets. Nevertheless, investors may position themselves ahead of the Malaysia state elections and the August quarterly reporting season. Elsewhere, the focus may shift towards the release of unemployment data in the US tonight to provide further clues on the US Federal Reserve’s next action.
