Inching higher

Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.3%) extended its gains largely buoyed by the eleventh hour buying support in selected index heavyweights after trading in a choppy manner yesterday, but gains were limited by the concerns over the rising number of Covid-19 cases. The lower liners finished mostly higher, while the broader market ended on a mixed note.

Global markets: US stockmarkets started off the week on a buoyant tone as the Dow rose 0.6% to climb above the 26,000 psychological level led by gains in technology shares which in turn boosted the Nasdaq (+1.1%) to close at fresh all time high. European stockmarkets retreated, while Asia stockmarkets closed mixed after China kept the benchmark lending rate unchanged.

The Day Ahead

With the lingering concern over Covid-19, we think that the key index may continue to trade in a rangebound manner as demonstrated over the past two trading sessions. Nevertheless, gains on Wall Street coupled with the higher crude oil prices may continue to provide some support on the key index to march mildly higher.

Sector focus: We think that the oil & gas sector will continue to thrive amid the rising crude oil prices (currently Brent oil is trading near USD43) on the back of the recovering demand over the longer term.

It was another lacklustre performance on the key index that traded in a rangebound manner as the key index continues to hold above the daily EMA20 level. For now, we continue to observe the 1,500 psychological level and we reckon that any upsides are capped at the 1,550 for the time being. Downside risk remains pegged at 1,490, followed by 1,460. Indicators are mixed with the MACD Indicator turning lower, but remains above the zero level. Meanwhile the RSI remains above 50.
