Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.1%) pullback alongside regional markets amid the ongoing concern over the interest rate normalisation in US. The lower liners fell, while the telecommunications & media sector (+0.7%) outperformed the broader market as both the DIGI and AXIATA took a step forward firming up the deal.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets rebounded as the Dow gained 1.8% as investors perceived that the US Federal Reserve will take on a less hawkish stance when inflation rate normalised. European stockmarkets also rebounded, but Asia stockmarkets were mostly downbeat.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI surrendered its gains amid hawkish comments from the Feds, alongside its regional peers. However, with the strong rebound overnight on Wall Street, coupled with the gradual subsiding in Covid-19 daily cases, bargain hunting may lift the sentiment on the local bourse. Also, we believe market participants should focus on recovery theme stocks given the vaccination rate is improving in Malaysia. Meanwhile, the oil price climbed near the USD75 on the back of weaker USD; while the CPO price continued its downtrend move.

Sector focus:. Tracking the upward move on Nasdaq, investors may continue to look out for technology stocks on the local front. Besides, the oil & gas sector may attract some buying interest on the back of firmer oil prices.

The FBM KLCI resumed its downtrend, closing again below the SMA200 level as investors’ sentiment remained tepid. Technical indicators turned negative as the MACD Histogram has turned into a red bar, while the RSI crossed below 50 level. We expect the key index to trade below its resistance level at 1,600 with some bargain hunting activities taking shape, while the support level is located around 1,555-1,565.
