KUALA LUMPUR: The domestic market bounced higher on Thursday as the US Federal Reserve hikes interest rates by an expected 75 basis points and reaffirmed its commitment to reining in sky-high inflation.
At 9.05am, the FBM KLCI was up 12.69 points to 1,471.74, tracking the rebound in major US indices that saw heavy selling earlier in the week as investors priced in assumptions of more aggressive Fed tightening.
The rising counters on the broader market outpaced the declining 270 to 68, to indicate overall positive sentiment.
Bursa Malaysia's rebound suggests that market conditions are calming down after nine consecutive days of decline, which took the market to an 18-month low.
"Mild bargain hunting activities may emerge at least for the near term after majority of the stocks have fallen into the oversold territory.
"Still, we reckon that the lack of fresh market catalysts and anxieties over the lingering inflationary pressure could result in the market environment remaining wary and cautious overtime, which may keep the upside limited," said Malacca Securities Research in a note.
Bank stocks showed the most recovery as the Fed's comments helped to regulate inflation fears of an impending recession.
Maybank rose seven sen to RM8.70, Public Bank gained five sen to RM4.53, Hong Leong Bank climbed 26 sen to RM20.90 and CIMB added six sen to RM5.02.
Commodities and plantations plays also followed suit. Press Metal gained six sen to RM4.90, Petronas Chemicals put on four sen to RM9.57 and Sime Darrby Plantation added nine sen to RM4.69.
Meanwhile, technology counters saw some relief as the Nasdaq jumped 2.5% after intense selling pressure in recent days.
MPI added 78 sen to RM30.30 and Vitrox gained 11 sen to RM7.21.
Top actives were Jade Marvel up one sen to 91.5 sen, LGMS climbing four sen to 81 sen and DNex adding 2.5 sen to 90 sen.
