Akbar, Arizwan (2021) Determinants of stock market performance: the case of Malaysia industrial product and services sector / Arizwan Akbar. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Johor.


The study of the determinants of stock market performance has been well known for years. Typically, the study focuses on macroeconomic conditions in the context of developed countries. The purpose of this research is to bridge the gap by analyzing the factors that impact the output of the stock market of a developing country, namely Malaysia. More precisely, by including Gross Domestic Product, inflation rate, exchange rate and US Stock Market in assessing their relationships with the performance of the Malaysian stock market price, this analysis attempts to expand existing literature reviews. This study will focus on the industrial products & services sector and will collect Bursa Malaysia data as a dependent variable sample. World Bank Data will collect independent variable data on a monthly basis from 2016 until 2019. For this research, the Multiple Linear Regression method with Time Series Data is being used. To test and analyze the collected data while using the E-View software package, the information obtained from the World Bank Database is used.
