Bursa Malaysia Bhd (BMYS:KL) Mahathir’s economic vision a hard sell for investors
Malaysia’s stock market may be set to repeat the market sell-off in 2015 as trade friction between United States and China escalates, say analysts.
They, however, kept optimistic year-end targets of above 1,700 points, meaning the fall which has begun since April this year is expected to end within as long as five to six months.
A new major support level of 1,600 points, a level that the key benchmark index has not traded on since August 2015, had been set and any attempt to break the level would spread fear that the index could be on the brink of falling into bear market, the analysts said.
The current fall seems to have mirrored the initial fall of the market sell-off in 2015 when FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI lost over nine per cent in just over two months since April 21, 2015, they added.
