Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.7%) extended its gains after hovering in the positive territory for the entire trading session, underpinned by gains in banking heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners trended lower, but the broader market finished mostly higher, with the energy sector (+3.5%) continues to take the lead.

Global markets: The US stockmarkets ended on a mixed note as the Dow jumped 1.0% on the positive progress over the impending stimulus bill, but the selloff in technology stocks intensified and sent the broader market such as the S&P500 and Nasdaq lower by 0.5% and 2.4% respectively. European stockmarkets rebounded, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly lower yesterday.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI extended its winning streak and outperformed its regional peers as recovery play gained strength, offsetting the losses in glove heavyweights. The shift in investors’ interest to recovery play stocks, coupled with the selldown on Wall Street may continue to weigh on the technology sector. Commodity wise, the CPO price has surged near its 10-year high around RM3,963 per tonne level. Meanwhile, investors may look forward to Malaysia's unemployment rate today. At this moment, we believe the key index should hold above the 1,600 level.

Sector focus: We believe traders may put plantation stocks on their radar on the back of firmer CPO price, while recovery theme sectors such as consumer, gaming, aviation and transportation may continue to gain traction amid the decline in Covid- 19 confirmed. Besides, construction and property stocks could see some trading interest as they are the laggards as compared to the broader market.

The FBM KLCI closed above the 1,600 level for the second session. Technical indicators turned positive as the MACD Histogram has extended another green bar, while the RSI is hovering above 50. With that, we expect the FBM KLCI to sustain above 1,600, with the resistance set around 1,620, while the support is pegged around 1,580.
