Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.03%) recovered all its intraday losses to record its fourth day winning streak on the back of sustained buying momentum in selected banking heavyweights. The lower liners, however, retreated, while the broader market finished mostly lower with the technology sector (-2.3%) underperformed.

Global markets: The US stockmarkets marched higher as the Dow (+0.2%) registered small gains, boosted by optimism over the massive budget proposal from US President Joe Biden. European stockmarkets were upbeat, while Asia stockmarkets closed mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI closed marginally higher after erasing all its intraday losses last Friday despite the gains in TM and selected index-linked banking stocks, marking its fourth straight session of gains. However, the local stocks may face selling pressure today following the National Security Council’s (MKN) decision to implement a total lockdown nationwide from 1st June 2021 on the back of spiking Covid-19 cases. Meanwhile, the CPO price climbed above RM4,000 while the oil price is hovering around USD68-69 level.

Sector focus: We expect a negative bias tone on the broader market over the total lockdown. However, investors may focus on vaccine or pharmaceutical related stocks amid the ongoing vaccination programme. Besides, sectors such as technology and shipping that are linked globally as well as PPE-related should continue to be operational under the FMCO and should get traders attention

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI climbed for the fourth straight session and closed above the 1,590 resistance level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI was hovering above the 50 level. Resistance is set around 1,600-1,610, while support is pegged along 1,550-1,555.
