Market Stable For Now


For the week, although key global markets have been negative, we have yet to call for the bear to arrive in our local market. As of today, the bears have still yet to arrive in the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI.

Dow Jones stable for now
The highly correlated Dow Jones, after suffering significant sell-downs from Friday to the beginning of this week, also seems to be stabilizing at this point. The support line that is keeping the Dow afloat is the mid term 90-day Moving Average trend line at the 8,000 level.

Our market’s buoyancy might provide trading opportunities
The Dow’s stabilization might also keep our local market afloat in the next few days. As of now, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia is supported by its short term 30-day Moving Average line. Our market's buoyancy might permit short term trading in second liner property counters like E&O and DNP which we have been highlighting in our previous reports.

He also stated that the group’s main plant has been running full on 3 shifts since April and that the industry’s inventory level is way below the normal level to sustain demand. (Financial Daily)

Global


Stocks managed gains Thursday, but the trend has remained downward since mid-June as investors have stepped back after a 40% rally off the March 9 lows. Bank, tech and commodity shares rose, but the broad market wavered as Alcoa©s narrower-than-expected quarterly loss failed to dispel concerns about the start of the quarterly reporting period. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 0.1% (+4.8 pts, close 8,183.2). The Nasdaq gained 0.3% (+5.4 pts, close 1,752.5) and the S&P 500 index gained 0.3% (+3.1 pts, close 882.7). In currency trading, the dollar fell versus the euro and gained versus the yen. U.S. light crude oil for August delivery rose 27 cents to settle at US$60.41 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. (CNNmoney)

The number of Americans filing claims for unemployment benefits fell last week to the lowest since January, as early automotive plant closures altered the timing of layoffs that typically happen at this time of year. Initial jobless claims fell by 52,000 to 565,000, a lower level than forecast, in the week ended July 4, from a revised 617,000 the prior week, the Labour Department said yesterday in Washington. Meanwhile, the number of people collecting unemployment insurance jumped to a record in the prior week. General Motors Corp and Chrysler LLC closed some plants in May and June, earlier than the normal summer shutdown period for retooling factories, as they entered bankruptcy, according to an economist. As a result, auto workers filed applications for jobless benefits earlier than usual, pushing down claims for July. (Bloomberg)

German exports rose in May, the third report this week to suggest Europe’s largest economy may be shaking off its worst recession since World War II. Sales abroad, adjusted for working days and seasonal changes, increased 0.3% from April, when they dropped 5%, the Federal Statistics Office in Wiesbaden said yesterday. Economists expected a gain of 1.5% in May, according to the median of 10 forecasts in a Bloomberg News survey. While the increase in exports was weaker than economists predicted, it follows reports this week showing factory orders and industrial output jumped in May. Imports declined 2.1% from April, when they dropped 6%, the statistics office said. The trade surplus widened to 9.6bn euros (US$13.4bn) from 9.4bn euros in the previous month. The surplus in the current account, the measure of all trade including services, was 3.7bn euros, down from 5.5bn euros in April. (Bloomberg)

The U.K. trade deficit narrowed in May to the smallest in three years as imports dropped, a sign the recession and the weakness of the pound is hurting demand for foreign products. The goods-trade gap was £6.3bn (US$10.2bn), the least since June 2006, compared with £7.1bn in April, the Office for National Statistics said yesterday in London. Imports fell 4% and exports declined 0.8%. The pound’s 18% slide against the dollar in the past year is making British exports more competitive and encouraging companies to shun imports. Manufacturers have nevertheless struggled to raise overseas sales as global trade slumps, hindering a recovery from the U.K. economy’s worst contraction in five decades. The trade gap was smaller than the £6.8bn median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey of 14 economists. (Bloomberg)

China’s passenger-vehicle sales rose 48% in June, the biggest jump since February 2006, as government stimulus spending spurred a revival in the world’s third-largest economy. Chinese motorists bought 872,900 cars, sport-utility vehicles and other passenger vehicles last month, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said in a statement yesterday. Overall auto sales, including buses and trucks, rose 36% y-o-y to 1.14m. A 4trn yuan (US$585bn) economic package has helped China surpass the U.S. as the world’s largest auto market this year and boosted sales for companies from General Motors Corp. to Alcoa Inc. The trade group raised its full-year vehicle sales forecast to more than 11m from 10.2m previously. 1H09 sales jumped 18% to 6.1m after the government cut some retail taxes and handed out vehicle subsidies in rural areas to spur demand.

Chile’s central bank cut its benchmark interest rate for a seventh straight month to a record in a bid to pull South America’s fifth-biggest economy out of its deepest slump in a decade. Policy makers yesterday reduced the rate to 0.5% from 0.75%, after central bank President De Gregorio on June 30 said that further stimulus may be needed. All 20 economists surveyed by Bloomberg correctly forecast the quarter-point cut. The bank’s five-member rate-setting committee slowed the pace of easing after reducing the benchmark by at least a half point at each of its six previous meetings this year. Chile’s policy makers have cut borrowing costs by 7.75 percentage points in 2009, more than any other central bank tracked by Bloomberg as the economy shrinks and the threat of inflation evaporates.

Leaders of the world’s biggest developed and emerging nations avoided a debate over the dollar’s role in the global economy as they agreed not to devalue their currencies to promote their exports. With officials from Brazil, India, China and Russia pushing consideration of alternative reserve currencies, their joint statement’s language on foreign exchange echoed an agreement at an April summit of the Group of 20. The leaders agreed to “refrain from competitive devaluations of our currencies,” according to the statement released after their meeting yesterday at the G-8 summit in L’Aquila, Italy. They also agreed to “promote a stable and well-functioning international monetary system.” (Bloomberg)
