Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+1.5%) recovered all its intraday losses as gloves heavyweights rallied from the recent pullback as investors shrugged off the detention orders placed on Top Glove and focus on further stimulus measures from Europe and US. The lower liners also tagged along the positive momentum across the local bourse, while only the energy sector (-0.1%) underperformed the positive broader market after crude oil prices extended their losses for second day.

Global markets: US stockmarkets finished mixed as the Dow fell 0.2% dragged down by the sluggish consumer sentiment data that fell to 73.2 in July 2020 due to the widespread resurgence of Covid-19 cases, but the S&P 500 gained 0.3%. European equities ended on a mixed tone, while Asia stockmarkets finished mostly higher, recovering from the previous session setback.

The Day Ahead

Following the strong recovery led by gains in glove heavyweights, we expect the positive momentum to continue as investors build onto their position, capitalising on the pullback of healthcare-related stocks. At the same time, the positive market undertone, coupled with the prevailing low interest rate environment may also drive rotational play amongst the lower liners as retail participants continue to adopt the hit-and-run technique in penny stocks.

Sector focus: The record daily new cases of Covid-19 at 237,467 cases across the globe will see demand for healthcare-related products on the rise, which we expect the healthcare sector continue to thrive over the foreseeable future.

The FBM KLCI has snapped a three-day losing streak after recovering all its intraday losses to form a bullish engulfing candle, re-claiming the daily EMA9 level. The bullish candle formation suggest for a potential recovery with the key index may re-test the resistance at around 1,615, followed by 1,620. On the flipside, the support is now pegged at 1,560, followed by 1,530.
