Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.8%) trended higher for the third straight session as the gains were largely boosted by Tenaga (+30.0 sen) and Top Glove (+15.0 sen) after the latter has delivered another set of record earnings. The lower liners edged mostly higher, while the broader market was mostly upbeat.

Global markets: Wall Street edged higher as the Dow (+0.1%) recorded its third day winning streak, whilst the S&P 500 (1.5%) and Nasdaq (+3.7%) rebounded, driven by the recovery in technology stocks. European stockmarkets extended their gains, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher yesterday.

The Day Ahead

As the economic recovery is taking shape following the declining of Covid-19 cases, the FBM KLCI continued its upward march; the key index is hovering steadily above the 1,600 psychological level. Meanwhile, tracking the strong rebound in tech heavyweights on Wall Street, we expect bargain hunting activities to emerge on the local technology stocks, which have been hammered down over the past week. Also, the CPO price has been trading firmer near the RM4,000 level.

Sector focus: Given the rebound in Nasdaq, market players may position themselves in the tech sector, while continue to pick up on laggard counters in the recovery-themed sectors, such as gaming, aviation, consumer, construction and property. Besides, we should expect see some buying interest in plantation counters amid firmer CPO prices.

The FBM KLCI found a firmer footing above the 1,600 psychological level after breaking firmly above resistance level around 1,620. The technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended another green bar, while the RSI is hovering above 50. We expect the upward trend to continue, with the resistance pegged around 1,645, followed by 1,660; while the support is envisaged around 1,600-1,620.
