Markets

Markets in Asia were mostly higher today with the return of some risk appetite. Weaker-than-expected inflation figures from the US last night calmed fears of aggressive interest rate rises from the Federal Reserve, and the continued reduction of tension in the Korean peninsula was welcomed too. The Hang Seng was last seen 1.36% higher and the Nikkei gained more than 1% as stocks headed towards their best week since February. Closer to home, Malaysia’s KLCI remains closed until Monday after Mahathir Mohamad’s shock election win in the elections on Wednesday. “We expect a kneejerk selloff when markets reopen, as the country risk premium spikes higher,” warned RHB analyst Alexander Chia. Malaysian five-year sovereign credit defaults swaps widened 5bp and Singapore-listed stocks with Malaysian exposure suffered yesterday. In the healthcare space, IHH Healthcare, Health Management International and Riverstone Holdings all traded down, though they stabilised today.
