Reuters-U.S. stocks closed higher on Monday, with the S&P 500 hitting a two-week high on the back of strong earnings and a flurry of deal activity, while the U.S. dollar hovered near a nine-month peak against other world currencies.

However, Canada’s main stock index unofficially closed 0.11 percent lower .GSPTSE as oil and gold prices weighed on shares of energy and mining companies, offsetting gains by financial firms.

Merger and acquisition activity spurred Wall Street, headed by Saturday’s announcement by telecommunications company AT&T Inc (T.N) that it plans to buy Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) for $85.4 billion in what would be the world’s biggest deal this year.

Strong quarterly earnings also boosted investor confidence. Third-quarter earnings are expected to increase 1.1 percent after four consecutive quarters of contraction, according to Thomson Reuters data.

More than a third of the S&P 500 components are scheduled to report earnings this week, including heavyweights such as Apple (AAPL.O) and Boeing (BA.N).

“Consensus is earnings are going to continue to improve in part due to favorable energy prices and to strong consumption patterns here in the U.S.,” said Chad Morganlander, portfolio manager at Stifel Nicolaus in Florham Park, New Jersey.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI rose 77.32 points, or 0.43 percent, to 18,223.03, the S&P 500 .SPX gained 10.17 points, or 0.47 percent, to 2,151.33 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 52.43 points, or 1 percent, to 5,309.83.

The greenback rose on expectations of a Federal Reserve interest rate increase in December.

FBMKLCI TURN UP AFTER BUDGET

Dear All,

The FBMKLCI closed higher at +7.78 point or +0.47% to close at 1677.76.

FBMKLCI yesterday doing pretty strong push up and break up from sideways, if this momentum can resume, we can see more stock pushing up.

DJIA still within big sideways correction range, nothing much to talk about, as long as DJIA close green, it will for sure give better goreng sentiment to our local market.

As for today, we are highly focus on AIRASIA, AAX, TUNEPRO, OWG.

The swimmer that remain in the pool will get the pie this Tuesday!

“Goreng Tetap Goreng” !

Yours Sincerely,
Logic Trading Analysis
