Bargain hunting may emerge

Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-1.3%) extended its losses yesterday to close below the 1,500 psychological level, mainly dragged by the Petronas-linked heavyweights. The lower liners ended higher, while the broader markets continued its downtrend with the exception of technology (+2.3%), healthcare (+1.0%) and energy (+0.2%) sectors.

Global markets: US stockmarkets rallied overnight as the Dow climbed 1.9% after the US President Donald Trump appears to soften his stance on further stimulus package. Both European and Asia stockmarkets both, however, finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

The eleventh hour sharp selling pressure in selected index heavyweights sent the local bourse spiralling lower yesterday. After the previous session slump, we think that bargain hunting activities may emerge on the local bourse as investors nibble on beaten down stocks. It was a tale of two sides as the lower liners managed to march higher on the back of the rotational play, coupled with the favourable market sentiment.

Sector focus: We see the technology sector anchoring the broader market over the foreseeable future with more businesses across various sectors embrace digitalisation. Elsewhere, the extended gains in CPO prices continue to provide trading opportunities within the plantation stocks.

The FBM KLCI was hammered down and formed a bearish candle, violating below the 1,500 psychological level. The sharp selling pressure may induce further weakness over the near term, although bargain hunting activities may also emerge in the interim. We continue to view the 1,480 as the immediate support, followed by 1,450. The immediate resistances are at 1,520, followed by 1,540. Indicators have turned negative as the MACD Histogram has turned red, while the RSI remains below 50.
