Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-0.2%) trended lower for the third straight session after enduring a choppy period, bogged down by selling pressure in gloves heavyweights. The lower liners finished mostly higher, while the broader market ended mostly higher with the Energy sector (+1.2%) leading the pack.

Global markets: The US stockmarkets finished mostly lower as the S&P 500 and Nasdaq shed 0.7% and 1.9% respectively after Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen brought about potential rates rise amid the strong economy growth rate. European stockmarkets were downbeat, while Asia stockmarkets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI posted losses for the third consecutive session as upward momentum on glove heavyweights has waned quickly on profit taking in the afternoon session. Tracking the negative performance on overnight Dow, our local exchange is expected to remain subdued on the back of rising Covid-19 cases which led to a tighter MCO implementation on six districts in Selangor. Meanwhile, the technology sector may see further pullback following the overnight decline of Nasdaq in Wall Street. On commodities, Brent oil price has seen a spike near to 2- month high on the back of demand optimism, while lumber futures charged towards all-time-high region.

Sector focus: We continue to like packaging-related stocks amid implementation of stricter MCO. Besides, higher Brent oil price, coupled with the higher-thanexpected results from the oil giant Saudi Aramco could spur buying interest, while trading interest should be noticed within lumber related stocks.

The FBM KLCI extended its losses for the third straight session, hovering below the 1,600 psychological level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI was hovering below the 50 level; MACD line oscillated below the zero level. The next resistance is envisaged around 1,615-1,635 if the key index managed to stay above the 1,600 level; while support is set at 1,565.
