Cautious undertone prevails

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.02%) finished mildly lower after recovering from its intraday low ahead of the mid-week break, dragged down by weakness in selected telco and gloves heavyweights. The lower liners rebounded, while the industrial products & services sector (+0.9%) outperformed on the mixed broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets turned lower as the Dow (-0.2%) fell on the back of the mixed economic data, while investors remain cautious on the economic reopening alongside with the spread of the Delta variant. Both the European stockmarkets advanced, while Asia stockmarkets finished mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI drifted lower earlier Wednesday but rebounded to close flat on last minute buying amid cautious market sentiment. Nevertheless, we believe bargain hunting activities should emerge with the return of foreign participation in our local stock markets on the back of our reopening of economic activities following several relaxations of SOPs under our National Recovery Plan; month-to-date foreigners have registered an inflow of RM904.6m. Commodities wise, the crude oil price hovered above USD75 per barrel, CPO price surged, while the gold price retreated.

Sector focus:. Further relaxation on NRP SOPs should continue to drive investors’ interest in accumulating recovery theme stocks such as building material and consumer. Besides, the plantation counter may benefit from the surging CPO price, while the transportation & logistics may gain traction with the Baltic Dry Index charging higher.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI fell below the daily EMA120 level as the key index continued hovering below 1,560 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI hovered below the 50 level. Resistance is located at 1,580-1,600, while the support is pegged along 1,535.
