Signs of recovery

Market Review

Malaysia: Although the FBM KLCI (-0.5%) was traded lower for the fourth straight session, losses were narrowed owing to gains in financial giants following the Securities Commission move to increase the gearing limit for Malaysian real estate investment trusts from 50.0% to 60.0% till 31st December 2022. The lower liners fell, while the broader market was mostly lower.

Global markets: US stockmarkets rallied overnight as the Dow jumped 1.1% on the stronger-than-expected consumer price index data that rose 0.6% YoY in June 2020 against consensus estimates of 0.3%, coupled with the higher crude oil prices following the larger-than-expected inventory drawdown. European stockmarkets extended their gains, but Asia stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

We reckon that a recovery may kick off supported by the gains across financial stocks that may provide some cushion the pullback in glove heavyweights. Likewise, investors will also be taking the opportunity to bargain hunt on beaten down stocks backed by the higher-than-average liquidity, but we caution that quick profit taking activities are still on the horizon.

Sector focus: While the gains in financial stocks may provide some cushion to the FBM KLCI, the energy sector may warrant another look after Brent oil prices closed above USD45 bbl. Long-term investors may opt for REIT stocks in view of the financing capping adjustment from SC to sustain their working capital.

The FBM KLCI has formed a hammer candle above the daily EMA60 level after recovering most of its intraday losses yesterday. Consequently, we expect a potential recovery towards the immediate resistance at 1,590, followed by 1,615. On the downside, the immediate support remained pegged at 1,550, followed by 1,540. Albeit that, indicators are still weak with the MACD continues to tread below the Signal Line, while the RSI remains below 50.
