Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) finished mildly lower, dragged down by the weakness in gloves heavyweights as investors also booked in further profits from the previous gains. The lower liners, however, continue their winning streak, while the broader market finished mixed.

Global markets: US stockmarkets edged lower after erasing all their intraday gains as the Dow fell 0.2% after the weekly unemployment claims data rose to the highest level since August 2020. European stockmarkets were upbeat, but Asia stockmarkets finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

Tracking the negative sentiment on Wall Street, coupled with the pullback in the FBM KLCI yesterday, we expect trading tone on the local front to further consolidate. Also, the overheated rally in the technology stocks may take a breather with traders digesting their gains over the next few days. Given some of the essential sectors are still operating under MCO 2.0, companies shall be able to register some earnings at least for this quarter. Meanwhile, we expect traders to lookout for LSS4 and immigration related news over the near term. Sector focus: Under the MCO 2.0, traders may rotate their funds into furniture related stocks, on the back of their earnings certainty in February reporting season. Meanwhile, we expect construction, building materials, furniture and O&G sectors to trade slightly higher today – the O&G sector might be benefited from firmer crude oil price (currently trading above USD56).

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI has taken a pause above the EMA9 yesterday. Based on the technical indicators, MACD Histogram has extended another green bar, while the RSI is hovering above 50. Hence, we should be expecting the FBM KLCI to take a mild breather along EMA9 before surging higher towards the envisaged resistance around 1,650-1,660. Meanwhile, support will be set around 1,630, followed by 1,620.
