Still on the move 

Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+1.1%) remained victorious for the fifth straight session with the glove heavyweights continue to take the lead while selected banking heavyweights playing catch-up. Consequently, the FBM KLCI gained 4.3% WoW, snapping three consecutive weeks of decline. The lower liners also marched higher, while the plantation sector (-0.2%) was the sole underperformer on the broader market after CPO prices retreated.

Global markets: US stockmarkets were closed for the Independence Day public holiday on last Friday. European stockmarkets ended lower on concern over the resurgence of high Covid-19 cases, but Asia equities extended their gains after China’s Caixin/Markit services Purchasing Manager’s Index (PMI) came at 58.4 in June 2020; the highest since April 2010.

The Day Ahead

After five consecutive days of winning streak, we think that upsides are still on the cards but will be restrained by the Covid-19 situation across the globe. Although the global economic recovery came in better-than-anticipated, investors will now shift their attention to the upcoming batch of corporate earnings in US to assess the impact of Covid-19.

Sector focus: With the rising number of Covid-19 cases, the healthcare sector may continue its upward trajectory run, while we also continue to favour the technology stocks on the back of the upcoming 5G implementation, production returning to normalcy to keep up with backlog orders and increasing adoption of automation.

The FBM KLCI gapped up and lingered in the positive territory throughout the entire trading session as the key index recorded its first weekly gain in four weeks, forming a flag-formation breakout. The move may prompt further gains towards the 1,580 and 1,590 resistances. Support is now pegged at 1,510 followed by 1,500. Indicators are still slightly positive as the MACD Line is attempting to rise above the Signal Line, while the RSI is approaching the overbought territory.
