Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-1.3%) kick started the holiday-shortened trading week on a dour note as selling activities resume with net foreign fund sellers (-RM199.7m) rose to the highest level since 4th January 2021. The lower liners were also not spared from the volatility, while the healthcare sector (+1.1%) was the only bright spot on the broader market.

Global markets: US stockmarkets ended mixed as the Dow (-0.1%) remained in the negative territory despite recovering most of its intraday losses as the US$1.9tn stimulus package may only be available in mid-March that offset the gains in technology shares. European stockmarkets extended their losses, while Asia stockmarkets finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

The selling on the FBM KLCI yesterday could have overdone as Health DG brushed off concerns over MCO3.0 and broader market could perform a relief rebound today. On the glove related stocks, we believe HARTA’s upbeat result could spillover to buying support on glove manufacturers and glove proxies today. However, investors could stay cautious ahead of the release of Malaysia's Producer Price Index tomorrow. As foreign funds turned into the selling mode, we expect the rebound might face with profit taking activities in the near term.

Sector focus: With the momentum picking up on healthcare stocks, coupled with HARTA’s result, traders may continue to lookout for opportunities within glove and glove proxies. Besides, investors may focus on severely bashed down stocks within the technology sectors ahead of the February reporting season.

The FBM KLCI has broken the support of 1,590, closing around the EMA 120 level. Indicators turned negative; the MACD Histogram has turned into a red bar, while the RSI remains below 50. If the key index could not surpass above the 1,600 level, we may see a further pull back going forward, with immediate support pegged at 1,570.
