Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.2%) continues to trade on a cautious tone with half of the key index components in the red prior to the two-day US FOMC policy meeting. The lower liners closed in the red, while the utilities sector (+0.3%) was the sole outperformer on the negative broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their losses as the Dow declined 0.8% after the US Federal Reserve is in plan to scale back the bond purchases and anticipates two interest rate hikes by end-2023. European stockmarkets ended mildly higher, but Asia stockmarkets closed mostly downbeat.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI sank into the negative territory as investors were concern on the outcome of the FOMC meeting. Despite the tepid sentiment, downside risks on the local bourse might be capped by declining Covid-19 cases trend, coupled the acceleration in vaccination rate following the implementation of Public-Private Partnership Industrial Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PIKAS) yesterday. Meanwhile, selected commodities prices dropped following China’s announcement on its campaign to control raw material prices by expanding its oversight of commodities trading and pledging to release the nation’s reserves of base metals.

Sector focus:. Following a pullback in commodities prices, investors may refocus on the sectors such as essential consumer stocks and packaging counters. In the meantime, traders may look out for recovery theme play on the back of the clearer National Recovery Plan unveiled by our PM; recovery theme sectors include consumer, property and construction.

The FBM KLCI extended losses for the second session as the key index struggled to rebound. Technical indicators is slightly negative as the MACD Histogram has turned into a red bar, while the RSI is still below 50. The key index may continue to trade below the resistance level at 1,600, while the support level is envisaged around 1,555-1,565.
