Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.7%) rebounded alongside with gains across regional markets, driven by optimism on economic recovery prospects that outweigh concerns over rising Covid-19 cases. The lower liners also rebounded, while the healthcare sector (-0.1%) was the sole underperformer on the broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets marched higher for the third straight session as the Dow added 0.1% on the back of gains in technology stocks, while earnings reporting continue to roll in. European stockmarkets finished mostly higher, while Asia stockmarkets ended on a positive note.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI is expected to build onto its previous session gains with the focus now shifting back towards the economic recovery progress. Still, we remain cautious as there were few domestic leads over the near-term outlook and this will further curtail any extended potential upsides. Nevertheless, the general market undertone is improving and this will allow the lower liners to develop decent recovery after a difficult two-month period that has seen many stocks veering into the oversold region.

Sector focus:. The technology sector is expected to chart higher, mirroring the positive performance on Nasdaq overnight. The consumer products and transport & logistics sectors may be in focus in anticipation of improve consumer spending in coming months alongside with the gradual re-opening of economic activities. Also, the firmer crude oil prices owing to the tight supplies and improving demand may provide a boost in the energy sector.

The FBM KLCI rebounded as the key index claw its way to close above the daily EMA9 level yesterday. Technical indicators, however, are still mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, but the RSI remains below the 50 level. The key index may continue to consolidate, with resistance set at 1,530-1,550, while the support level is located at 1,500.
