Market Review

Malaysia: Once again, the eleventh hour buying support in selected index heavyweights lifted the FBM KLCI (+0.2%) to close in the positive territory alongside with the performances across regional peers yesterday. The lower liners, however, extended their losses, while broader market closed mixed with the healthcare sector (-4.0%) remained downbeat.

Global markets: European stockmarkets rallied on expectations that the European Central Bank will keep its dovish stance this week, while the British Pound sank against the Euro Currency on concern over UK is preparing for a no-deal Brexit. Asia stockmarkets ended mixed, while US stockmarkets were closed for the Labor Day public holiday with futures markets pointing higher.

The Day Ahead

We see the consolidation to linger over the near term on the FBM KLCI as gains will be measured by the weakness from glove heavyweights. For now, any strong recovery will be tempered by quick profit taking activities. The lower liners may continue to endure a rough ride on the back of the negative market breadth, although there are some pockets of opportunities for a rebound play.

Sector focus: Following the recent volatility, we now stay defensive, opting for stocks that offer better fundamental footing such as the REIT and utilities sector. Both the aforementioned sectors are touted defensive in nature and offer stable dividend yields over the long run.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI recovered all its intraday losses to form a hammer candle yesterday. Still, the key index remained closed below the daily EMA120 level. We continue to view the 1,500 as the immediate support, followed by 1,480. Resistances, meanwhile, are located at 1,555, followed by 1,580. Indicators remained mixed with the MACD Histogram extended another green bar, while the RSI is threading near the oversold region.
