Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.3%) staged a mild rebound after lingering mostly in the positive territory, lifted by gains in selected telco and banking heavyweights. The lower liners edged marginally higher, while the broader market closed mixed with the technology sector (+1.3%) outperformed.

Global markets: The US stockmarkets staged a strong recovery as the Dow added 0.8%, boosted by a series of solid corporate earnings, while jobless claims continue to fall for the second straight week. European stockmarkets closed mostly upbeat, while Asia stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

Despite regional peers ending mixed, the FBM KLCI rebounded and booked modest gains on the back of bargain hunting activities. We believe the market sentiment should be recovering further with the Finance Minister stating that the hospitalisation rate will be used as a metric to ease curbs for states once they enter the second phase of the national recovery plan, instead of daily confirmed cases; that may boost a little on the recovery theme, in the near term. Commodities wise, the crude oil rebounded and hovers above UD70, while the CPO price retreated after a two-day rebound.

Sector focus: The positive sentiment in Nasdaq may continue to spill over to the local technology stocks. Besides, investors may pay more attention to the recovery theme as the relaxation of SOP for two-dose vaccinated citizens will be unveiled in the near term. We expect transportation & logistics, building materials, construction as well as services industries may observed higher trading interest.

The FBM KLCI registered marginal gains amid bargain hunting activities, but still hovering below the 1,500 level. Technical indicators turned slightly positive with the MACD Histogram turning green, while the RSI is recovering above 30. Bargain hunting activities might push the key index towards the 1,500 level, with the next resistance set at 1,520. Meanwhile, support level is located around 1,480.
