Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) snapped a four-session losing streak as investors cheered on Bank Negara Malaysia’s decision to maintain the Overnight Policy Rate at 1.75% while awaiting results from the US presidential election. The lower liners extended their gains while REITs index (-0.1%) was the sole decliner on the broader market.

Global markets: US stockmarkets soared as the Dow (+1.3%) moved higher for the third straight session and Nasdaq (+3.9%) climbed to its highest level since April 2020 amid ongoing tally of votes for the US presidential election. European stockmarkets finished in green, while Asia stockmarkets closed mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI managed to hold onto its gains as the key index snapped a four-day losing streak mild bargain hunting activities in beaten down stocks. Although the US presidential election race remains on course, investors breathed sigh of relief that the neckline race will see neither party holds the neither majority in Senate nor in House of Representatives; which suggest that any broad policy changes are off the table. Meanwhile, we still think that rotational play amongst the lower liners may take charge over the interim, owing to the positive market sentiment.

Sector focus: The plantation sector is expected to garner further trading interest following the rising CPO prices that is rallying toward RM3,100/MT. We also reckon that the construction sector remain in favour in view of the tabling of Budget 2021 that is expected to see the mega-infrastructure projects remain in the pipeline.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI staged a mild recovery for the first time in five trading days as the key index formed a sideways shooting star candle yesterday. With strong gains remain elusive at current juncture; we reckon that upsides are to be capped towards the immediate resistance at 1,480-1,500. In contrast, the supports located at 1,450, followed by 1,430. Indicators have turned mixed as the MACD Histogram has turned green, but the RSI remains below 50.
