Market Review 

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.6%) ended the week on a positive tone, spurred by bargain hunting in gloves heavyweights, coupled with the gains in plantation giants as CPO prices remain upbeat. The lower liners rebounded, while the broader market ended mostly higher, led by the Healthcare sector (+2.3%).

Global markets: The US stockmarkets extended their gains as the Dow (+0.7%) rallied for the fifth session as the weaker-than-expected jobs data provided some alleviation towards the inflationary pressure. European stockmarkets also extended their gains, but Asia stockmarkets finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI finished the Friday’s session on a positive note on the back of bargain hunting activities in glove and plantation heavyweights. However, market sentiment may remain cautious throughout the holiday-shortened trading week while focusing on Malaysia’s 1Q2021 GDP growth rate, which might still be weak on the back of Covid-19 affected environment. Nevertheless, traders may focus on commodities that are on a rising tone such as CPO, which has jumped more than 5.0% last week as well as Brent oil price that has a slight uptick as of this juncture.

Sector focus: Plantation and O&G sector may be under the limelight today amid firmer CPO and Brent oil price. Also, under the MCO3.0, we might anticipate stronger demand in packaging and media-related stocks amid the stay home mode. Besides, the technology sector may see some technical rebound following the overnight gains in Nasdaq.

The FBM KLCI extended its gains last Friday after erasing the morning losses. Technical indicators turned mixed as the MACD Histogram has turned into a green bar, while the RSI was hovering below the 50 level. The key index may trade within a tight range with support pegged around 1,555-1,565, while the resistance is set along 1,600-1,620.
