HIGH liquidity, stronger currencies and robust domestic growth will keep Asian stock markets buoyant next year notwithstanding anticipated interest rate hikes and political concerns in certain parts of the region. Investor interest will also be shifting from cyclical I>beta/Istocks to those with long-term growth potential.
AS the Kuala Lumpur stock market continued its losing streak for a fifth consecutive day Wednesday, with the KLSE Composite Index (CI) shedding nearly seven points to 775, hopes of a rally to take the benchmark back above the 800 level by New Year's Eve are fading fast.
