Recovery in store

Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+1.0%) staged a strong recovery alongside with gains across regional peers owing to the share buybacks from glove heavyweights that offset the weakness in other key index constituents. Still, the key index fell -0.7% WoW; marking its third straight weekly decline. Meanwhile, the lower liners also rebounded in tandem.

Global markets: US stockmarkets was largely upbeat as the Dow rose 0.5% ahead of the extended weekend break as gains were underpinned by the stronger-than expected consumer price index data that rose 1.3% YoY in August 2020. Earlier, European stockmarkets finished mostly higher on a choppy trading session, while Asia stockmarkets were mostly upbeat.

The Day Ahead

We see signs on changing tides as the FBM KLCI will be largely dictated by the movement in glove maker heavyweights. Gains across overseas markets may provide some stability over the near term, but we do not discount further volatility ahead due to a barrage lingering uncertainties. At the same time, the positive sentiment transpired to gains across the lower liners as investors bargain hunt on the recent selldown.

Sector focus: We see buying interest spilling into the healthcare thematic play as investors bargain hunt on beaten down stocks. Meanwhile, the technology sector is also finding some stability from their recent pullback may warrant another look.

The FBM KLCI has rebounded, forming a bullish engulfing candle as the key index closed above the 1,500 psychological level on last Friday. The buoyant momentum may likely to extended on the local bourse towards the next resistances located around 1,515-1,555. On the flipside, we continue to view the 1,480 as the immediate support, followed by 1,450. Indicators are now mixed with the MACD Histogram turned green, but the RSI remains below 50.
