Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.4%) recorded its third straight decline, dragged down by healthcare and plantation heavyweights. The lower liners were also downbeat, while all the transportation & logistics sector (+0.1%) was the only sweet spot on the broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets rebounded from their recent slump as the Dow (+0.8%) snapped a 5-day losing streak, ahead of the key inflation data that will provide clues on the timing of interest rate hike. European stockmarkets advanced, while Asia stockmarkets finished mostly lower. The Day Ahead Tracking the overall negative regional performances, the FBM KLCI dipped for a third straight session amid sour market sentiment on heavy selling in selected heavyweights led by TOPGLOV. However, tracking the positive rebound on Wall Street, coupled with the stability in the political landscape following the MoU inked between the federal coalition and Pakatan Harapan yesterday, we believe the recent bashed down in broader market may to be cushioned out by potential bargain hunting activities at least for this week. Commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil prices advanced, while aluminium prices continue to charge higher.

Sector focus:. Bargain hunting activities may continue in the recovery theme stocks such as banking, consumer, and tourism, especially in the domestic travel segments. Besides, investors may trade plantation and oil & gas counters amid firmer commodities prices. Also, aluminium related counters should trade actively at least for the near term.

Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI hovered above the 50 level. Support is pegged around 1,560, while the resistance is located at 1,600.
