Vietnam Index (HD9:SGX) Trending Higher

  The Vietnamese economy has faced significant challenges since late 2021, mainly due to the slowdown in global trade volumes and high inflation rates. However, with inflation gradually easing, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has signaled his intention to introduce growth-boosting policies . The Vietnam index has also shown promising signs, having exited its previous downtrend channel and now seemingly consolidating. Given the current momentum, we expect the index to revisit its recent high of 1,120, and potentially surge towards the 1,200 mark if this positive trend persists. Disclaimers apply

Resilient Equity Markets, Anticipating Stimulus in China

  The equities market enjoyed a surge last week, bolstered by the successful resolution of the US debt ceiling crisis. Additionally, the release of promising US jobs data and a better-than-expected report on China's manufacturing sector offered further impetus to the markets. In the East, despite ongoing efforts to stimulate its economy following the lifting of lockdown measures, China continues to grapple with a challenging recovery process. This struggle is primarily due to an economic crackdown and weak exports. As a result, market analysts anticipate that Beijing will amplify its stimulus strategies to rekindle domestic growth. Based on these positive signals and the prospect of increased stimulus, alongside appealing valuations, we anticipate this upward trend to persist. (9618, HK): Expecting Trend Change .
